BRIGHTON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A man is facing charges for threatening a youth football coach during a game.
Brandon Quarles, 37, stormed onto the field during a midget football game last Wednesday in Brighton Township.
Fifty to 60 children and their parents at Hardy Fields were watching when it happened.
Police say Quarles went onto the field at about 7:30 p.m. and yelled that he would tear Garrett Morrow’s head off.
He even said that if he saw Morrow on the field, he would put a bullet in his head.
“There ain’t no telling what he could have done that day or any other day,” William Gosseck, a parent, said.
Police charged Quarles with terroristic threats, harassment and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned a week ago and released on a $10,000 bond.
According to court documents, a few hours before the game, Quarles was cited for putting his hands around his wife’s neck in a choke hold, threatening her and a male friend who was there at the time.
There’s no word if Quarles had a child on the team.
