A Parkersburg man was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot a middle school football coach over his son's time on the field.
Police arrested Steven Wayne Britton, 41, at his Homeland Avenue on Friday, according to a statement issued by Parkersburg police.
Britton allegedly approached Coach Robert Davis Thursday during football practice at Hamilton Middle School and started a confrontation. The confrontation apparently was over the lack of playing time Britton's son was seeing on the football team.
The statement reported that Britton screamed at Davis and put his finger in his face and then talked about shooting the man. He told Davis, "I put three bullets in the last man to cross me," according to the release.
Britton was charged with assault of a school employee, a misdemeanor. He is free on $2,500 bond and is barred from Hamilton Middle School property.
