This is going to be a problem for Mr. Miller going forward.
Shelly Miller, 37, reportedly attacked one of his daughter’s basketball coaches earlier this month for making her and her teammates run laps, according to WSBT.
Miller allegedly punched the coach several times before the victim lost consciousness, according to the report. The father attacked the coach after finding out that he made his daughter, as well as other players, run laps for talking back to him. He reportedly went to the school (St. Stanislaus in Michigan City) “five times” to talk to the coach, but a physical confrontation was apparently needed to get his message across.
“Yeah, he hit a coach. [So what?],” family member Wynter Goodwin told WSBT News on Thursday. She then followed that statement with several expletives and charges of racism.
“If the coach is [expletive] with your kid, what are you to do?” added Goodwin. “You can’t talk to him.”
Ashley Blake, another relative, knows what Miller did was wrong, “But, you don’t know what led up to that situation,” she said.
Miller is to appear in court again on May 3.
