If you’ve ever had an angry parent spontaneously show up at your school (or, to a party you snuck out to attend … wearing a robe and slippers … not that that’s ever happened to me … gulp) this story probably isn’t all that funny.
According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, a ticked off father recently substituted himself into his son’s soccer game in an attempt to punish him for poor grades. The sneak attack was a failure on two fronts: 1. No one passed pops the ball, and 2. He was arrested and charged for trespassing.
The man, identified as Benjamin H. Doyle, has been banned from Iowa City High School property and admitted that he let his temper “get the best of him.”
I’m going to spend the remainder of my days searching for video of this incident (If someone out there has footage I’ll pay any price!).
As for the son, he couldn’t be reached for comment. He was busy studying … and undergoing an identity change.
