Mother uses stun gun to zap son’s football coach

with 4 comments

From the Times-Union in Jacksonville, Fla:

A Pop Warner football coach was zapped with a stun gun Tuesday night during an argument with a parent at Sandalwood High School, Jacksonville police said.

Now 43-year-old Roxine Cornela Cobb of the 700 block of Oaks Plantation Drive in Arlington has been arrested on charges of battery and discharging a weapon on school grounds, according to the police report.

Robert Medley II told police he had argued with the woman and her son who plays on his football team Monday night. The confrontation resumed about 6:15 p.m. the next day when the woman walked up to Medley and zapped him in the chest with the stun gun, the arrest report said.

Medley, 41, said he slapped the stun gun out of her hand and the argument ended as police arrived. Cobb told police she didn’t think she actually zapped him.

Two witnesses confirmed the coach’s account, police said.

Pressed for further comment about how he felt about this turn of events, the coach said: “Shocked.”

  4. I grew up playing little league baseball, league basketball, soccer, flag football. Sandlot rugby (disorganized smear the queer don’t judge dudes , you know it! Ha) .anyways i had friends grown up in pop warner. I’m not for or against. I’ve seen a wide variety of so called success in life 30 years later. One constant (more often than not) those who prematured physically were played in the high contact positions, seem to have more physical and mental decline issue. Am I the lucky one who missed the jr varsity football team cut .I only tried out to impress a girl. 30 years later heard she died crack od, so moral of story pussy kills but at least i remember your first girlfriend sname (clue, ya weren’t her first)
