A basketball coach in Florida who was accused of injuring another coach and a player has been arrested.
Peterlantz Dantes, 40, has been charged with two counts of battery after allegedly attacking the coach and a player after losing a basketball game last week, WSVN-TV reported. The player suffered an eye injury, according to police, and the other coach tore his hamstring.
The incident happened during the Back-to-School Jam Fest inside the Coral Springs Gymnasium.
Basketball tournament organizer Marcus McGee told WSVN-TV that there's "no excuse for what he did, chasing down a child."
McGee said Dantes is no longer allowed at Coral Springs Gymnasium.
"He has been banned from all of our events," McGee said. "You don’t see adults, a coach attacking a child."
