Soccer mom charged after attacking coach with lawn chair

A soccer mom angered over being dropped from the team e-mailing list for game-day directions was arrested after slamming a metal folding chair across the face of her daughter's coach, police said Tuesday.

Schwarzman, 67, who suffered a cut to the lip and cheek in the attack, said Vigil is telling "a total lie," referring to her defense. Vigil said she approached Schwarzman after the game and asked why he stopped e-mailing her directions to visiting games. He responded with a torrent of curses, she said.

Schwarzman admitted he made a negative remark about the woman being a single mother with two daughters, ages 12 and 10. But he said he tried to avoid the confrontation by walking to his car. Vigil followed, picked up a nearby folding chair, and in view of her daughter, "slammed me in the face with it three times," Schwarzman said. "I never touched her." » Article here
