Two Men Charged After Fight Involving Gun At Youth Football Game

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.

    “ams football couch and a parent”. Couch, really? And I don’t understand why someone should lose their second amendment rights on school grounds? I mean, really, does that law stop the criminals?
