LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a father and son who they say attacked a man after a basketball game at Trinity High School on Saturday.
Demetrius Franklin, 48, and Daelyn Franklin, 18, were arrested Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities say that on Saturday, the pair approached the victim, who is a basketball coach at Doss High School, in a hallway at Trinity High School, located on Shelbyville Road in Saint Matthews. Police say the men hit the coach multiple times with closed fists.
Investigators say the victim was hit in the head. Official records also state that the victim was “knocked sideways and out the of door of the building.” The report also states the victim suffered injuries to the side of his head, left side of his face, neck and lower back.
Witnesses to the incident detained both men until police arrived.
Police records state that Daelyn Franklin is a student at Doss and a member of the basketball team. Officials say the incident began because both Demetrius Franklin and his son were upset about incidents that happened during the game.
Thought this belonged in the follow up spot to my last blog about Parenting 101. Feel like the adults are just putting on a clinic on child raising today, in this case Demetrius Franklin teaching his son Daelyn all about the importance of fighting (literally) for what you feel is right. Think you’re getting unfairly treated by your coach, not getting the PT you deserve, that you fought for so hard in practice? All those charges you took and loose balls you dove for, the extra bursts you put in to the end of your suicides, keeping your head held high while everyone else had their hands on their knees tugging on their shorts gasping for air. And what, you’re just supposed to sit on the end of the bench in your warm-ups clapping for your teammates? Fuck that.
Seriously I searched “playing time” on the Superpage and this was what came up, all Pussification of America stories
Everyone complaining about their kid’s playing time, filing lawsuits, digging up dirt and using other underhanded tactics. Demetrius doesn’t play that shit, he just rolls up his sleeves, slugs you in the mouth a couple of times and lets the lesson be learned. Somebody get this guy a World’s Greatest Dad mug and get him one ASAP.
