A Parkersburg man was arrested after police said he threatened his son's football coach allegedly because of lack of playing time his son was getting on the field.
Steven Wayne Britton, 41, of Parkersburg has been charged with assault of a school employee.
The incident happened on Thursday at a football practice at Hamilton Middle School, according to a criminal complaint filed in Wood County Magistrate Court.
Police said Britton approached coach Robert Davis and started screaming at him and pointing his finger in his face. Then, at some point during the altercation, Britton allegedly talked about shooting Davis and said, "I put three bullets in the last man to cross me," according to the complaint.
Britton was released on a $2,500 bond with the condition that he is not permitted on Hamilton school property.
