Asshole ‘Tripping Coach’ Gets 15-Day Prison Sentence


Recommended Posts



Last June's viral hit of a youth hockey coach purposefully tripping a 13-year-old player in a handshake line has since been removed from Youtube, but there are many copies available. To refresh your memory:


It has to be seen to be believed. On Saturday afternoon, the UBC Hornets beat the Richmond Steel 5-4 to win the championship of the University of British Columbia spring hockey line. As the teams proceeded through the handshake line, the Hornets coach stuck his foot out, causing two young boys to topple like dominoes, with one of them breaking his wrist. Outrage spread throughout Canada and the U.S.; on Thursday, it was reported that RCMP will recommend that the coach be charged with assault. [buzzing the Net - Archives]


The coach in question, Martin Tremblay, was sentenced Tuesday in a B.C. Provincial Court in Richmond, to 15 days in prison served intermittently on weekends. After which, Tremblay will have a year of probation.
