Father Charged With Assaulting Son's Coach

Gaston Gazette (N.C.)

STANLY COUNTY, N.C. -- A basketball player at North Stanly High School did not show up for classes on Monday morning, two days after his father was charged with assaulting the coach.

Deputies arrested Michael Todd Forrest on Friday night and charged him with assaulting his son's coach, Bobby Staley, after a basketball game.

They also charged 17-year-old Logan Forrest with obstructing an officer when he tried to intervene.

"A parent and student basically attacked the fellow from behind," said Dr. Samuel DePaul, Stanly County Schools superintendent.

DePaul said he's still not sure what led up to the attack that came as Staley was cleaning up after the game.

"It just shows you how it went down -- who would've expected it? It's just unbelievable what went down," DePaul said.

Channel 9 called the Forrest residence, but no one was home and the call has not been returned.
