Police report: Brooklyn HS basketball coach shoots father of player in dispute over playing time

By

A Brooklyn high school basketball coach was arrested for shooting the father of one of his players in an apparent dispute over his son’s playing time.

As reported by the Associated Press, among other outlets, Todd Myles was arrested and charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal use of a firearm in connection with a dispute he had with the father of one of his players at Paul Robeson High School (Brooklyn, N.Y.) According to the AP, the father in question came to Myles’ house in Brooklyn in late December, allegedly to argue against the limited minutes his son was seeing on the court.

The coach, who was 42, was removed from payroll for the Department of Education. Meanwhile, the unidentified father in question allegedly remains hospitalized in critical condition after a bullet fired by Myles struck him in the neck.

The charges were only brought now because the father was finally able to speak from the hospital.

There was no announced date about when Myles will next be in a courtroom.
