LANCASTER - The father who allegedly assaulted Garrard County High School's basketball coach was angry about his son's treatment on the team, a school official said.
Jerry Dick, 43, of Nina Ridge, was accused of attacking coach Cecil Combs and arrested on assault charges Monday after the incident and released that night.
Garrard County School Superintendent Ray Woolsey said Thursday that Dick, his wife, Tammy, and son Michael went to the school to discuss their complaints about Michael's treatment on the team.
Michael, a senior, had quit the team last Thursday.
"They felt their son had been mistreated," Woolsey said.
Dick and his wife met with Combs in his office while the players got ready for a morning practice on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
