ROCHESTER (KDKA) — Two men have been charged with fighting in front of children at a youth football game in Rochester.
Officers were called Sept. 11 to the Rochester Area High School football field for a fight between a Little Rams football coach and a parent.
Police reportedly said 36-year-old Jared Wright, who appeared to be intoxicated, was mad because the coach called his son an expletive. Wright reportedly shoved the coach and threatened him.
That’s when 36-year-old Ryan Clark, another parent, approached Wright about a previous incident involving their children. This prompted Wright to push Clark against a car.
Clark then pulled a gun from inside the car and threatened Wright.
Wright, of Rochester, is charged by Rochester Police with assault on a sports official and making terroristic threats.
Clark, of New Brighton, is charged with simple assault, possession of a weapon on school property, making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.
