MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s not uncommon for fights to break out on the ice at hockey games, but off the ice is another story. Over the weekend, an upset parent in West Fargo took their conflict into the locker room — and attacked a coach.

Mike Prochnow, who’s in charge of compliance with the West Fargo Hockey Association, said a few parents weren’t happy with a call made on the ice and decided to take matters into their own hands.

“Some parents were not happy with what happened on the ice during the 8-year-old Mites tournament, and we had a mom go into the locker room after the coaches,” Prochnow said.

He said she was warned four times to leave the locker room, and then they tried to escort her to the door.

“Her husband jumped over the top of her, and started punching the coach of the opposing team,” he said.

Police were called but no charges were filed.
