According to police, a man in Whitley County didn't appreciate his son being pulled from a baseball game, so he allegedly took matters into his own hands.

William Asher reportedly left the bleachers and went to the dugout to confront the coach while the game was still being played.

Although officers said the coach tried to calm Asher down, he allegedly shoved the coach and then put him in a choke hold.

They said he then hit the team's assistant coach.

Asher was arrested and lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
