WILLIS, TX – In a shocking incident, a high school basketball player and his older sibling from Texas are now facing legal repercussions after allegedly attacking their coach. The event transpired last week when the younger brother was taken out of a game due to his unacceptable behavior towards another player.
The suspects, Jevin Allen, 17, and his brother Jarrick Allen, 22, have been charged with assault on a public servant. The alleged attack happened when the coach returned to Willis High School following an away game in Conroe, as per Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office officials.
The coach reportedly spotted Jevin Allen and his family in the school’s parking lot after the game, apparently upset over the coach’s decision to bench Jevin. When the coach reentered the school and observed the family still in the parking lot, a verbal disagreement broke out.
Police reports suggest that Jevin Allen initiated physical violence by punching the coach, followed by Jarrick Allen who joined in the assault. Another coach and some bystanders attempted to halt the brawl. The Allen brothers are said to have fled the scene once the fight ended.
The brothers were subsequently arrested and held in the Montgomery County Jail. They were released after posting bonds of $23,000 each. It has been confirmed by school authorities that Jevin Allen is no longer enrolled at Willis High School.
The school district has issued a statement, saying, “The investigation is ongoing, but we did determine that the student’s address was no longer valid, so he has been withdrawn from the district. We are deeply saddened by this incident and will not tolerate this behavior from students.” The assaulted coach is reportedly recuperating from his injuries.
