Youth Hockey Coach Arrested On Charges He Tripped An Opposing Player In The Handshake Line

In a refreshing reminder that it isn't just the United States dealing with the problem of psycho youth sports coaches, a kiddie hockey league coach in Vancouver is in hot water with authorities after allegedly tripping an opposing player in the postgame handshake line, breaking the child's wrist.

Mounties arrested UBC Hornets coach Martin Tremblay after his squad's 5-4 win over Richmond Steel on the University of British Columbia campus. Tremblay allegedly claimed he slipped on the ice. RCMP has yet to bring charges, but could bring assault or assault to commit bodily harm based on a confirmation of the child's injury.
