Why yes, yes it does.
Pictured is Jared Gallagher, who is hands down the worst assistant football coach in middle school history. Gallagher, on the first day of school no less at Rowan County Middle School (N.C.), was walking a 12-year-old player back to the locker room when he inexplicably started choking the boy. As terrible as that was, it actually got worse from there.
From WCNC Charlotte…
According to a report filed with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, it all started at Corriher-Lipe Middle School around 5 p.m. after football practice.
Head football coach Douglas Pruitt told deputies that Gallagher was walking with the 12-year-old boy to the locker room after practice and choked him.
Pruitt tried to intervene, but Gallagher tried to fight him, according to the report. A parent then got involved as Puitt called 911 for help.
When deputies arrived they approached Gallagher and asked him to put his hands behind his back.
Gallagher did not comply, according to the report, and was tased by the deputy. Gallagher reportedly pulled the prongs out of his body and was shocked again by another officer behind him, the report stated. Gallagher was shocked for a third time and fell to the ground where he was restrained by officers.
Deputies discovered a 9 mm pistol with 79 live rounds of ammunition inside Gallagher’s truck, according to the report.
Yikes. Talk about your unstable personalities. This guy makes Gary Busey look like freaking Mr. Rogers. And yet Gallagher was back on the streets after posting his $5,000 bond, ready to bring the crazy to day two of football practice at Rowan County Middle School. Seeing that he’s been charged with misdemeanor child abuse, misdemeanor possession of a weapon on educational grounds and misdemeanor resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer, it’s pretty safe to assume he won’t be welcomed back…ever.
Let’s just hope he’s never allowed within 50 yards of a football field, kids, or semi-automatic handguns again.
