DALTON, Ga. (AP) - Whitfield County authorities charged a Tunnel
Hill man with assaulting his son's youth baseball coach.

Sheriff's deputies arrested 36-year-old Jerry Leonard Morris on
Friday.

He was charged with battery and disorderly conduct for striking
the assistant coach in the face at a practice session.

According to a sheriff's office report, Morris was upset because
the coach wouldn't allow his son to pitch.

Assistant coach James McTaggart was treated and released.

Morris posted a $1,500 bond and was released from jail.
