The wild brawl that was caught on video. In the end, 54 year old Barry Lee Jones was arrested and processed at the Carraburrus County Jail. He was arrested for simple assault and disorderly conduct. His son’s opponent was not injured in the attack.

He was later released on a $1,000 bond. FOX 8 reports that this whole mess started after his son’s opponent used an illegal move during the match.

Some parents should just wait in the car until their kid’s extracurricular activities are over.
