    This is happening right around me. The PD is in full on damage control mode, the redneck chief posted a diatribe to facebook that was instantly discredited by parents who were there. The PD has since taken down their Facebook page totally and the county attorney has already dropped the case.

    Since removed diatribe by the Chief:

    For what it's worth, I went to high school with and occasionally drink with officers of both cities. One is run like a professional, big city department, the other is run on the Good Old Boy system where the Chief is daddy.

    Sounds like a bad cop going after her, and he should probably be put in jail.

    Ditto. I don't get it. What I do get is the cop wants story X and the ref (who is impartial) is siding with the woman.

    Besides, it's a fictitious story. This couldn't happen in the free and kumbaya state of Texas, where citizens have all the rights and the police are always peeing awesomeness. ;)

    What a bunch of dorks. All of them. Adults getting all worked up over people saying "mean things". Sports parents can be an odd bunch.

    Wow. There are no winners here. Sounds like the coach didn't really do much but respond to an inappropriate spectator.

    All charges against the young lady coach have been dropped.

    I'd expect the city of Alvarado will be sued and they will settle or lose.

    The nutty screed from Chief Melson should get him fired. What an absolute fool. It seems the Alvarado PD and even city offices have gone into their version of full radio silence about all this. I'd bet the plain clothed cop will be severely disciplined or fired as well.

    That would require the city manager to do the deed and Alvarado is such a small and insular community that I don't see that going down. My money is on them being quiet till the settlement is reached and then pretending it never happened.

    Once the coach files her lawsuit, the 6 hours she spent behind bars will become the most profitable of her life.

    This is why I coach soccer. As long as the parents stay on their side of the field, I can't even hear them :)

    But the kids do sometimes complain about the parents when they come off the field, especially the kids playing near the parent's side. I tell them just to ignore them. Some parent's try to coach from the sideline, and some say rude/wrong stuff (according the kids). But mostly the parents seem pretty good, and just the couple of lines I've typed probably make the parents look worse than they are.

    The press release seems appreciably different from many press releases I have read over the years.

    I can't even understand what happened, if I had a Captain working for me that interjected himself into a sporting event AND called in an outside agency , it would be his last semi official police activity, and I have a few Captains working for me.
    The only acceptable police interaction I would tolerate would be one that was taken to ensure the physical safety of a person that was being violently physically assaulted.

    Read through the comments in the article. Now that the charges have been dropped that seems to give more credence to a good-old-boy system trying to take care of a cop that went way too far.

    I'm sure the officer was just in fear for his life, and wanted to go home safe.

    Officer Melson should be stomped for his power trip.
