Father accused of hitting football coach with ax handle

The father of a high school football player in Monterey is facing assault charges after allegedly attacking one of the team’s coaches with an ax handle, according to reports.

Raynald Adams, 40, was arrested Wednesday after the alleged attack, the Monterey County Herald reported.

Monterey police officials said Adams walked onto the campus of Monterey High School and confronted one of the coaches, then hit him twice with an ax handle. The coach refused medical attention.

Adams coached the school’s junior varsity basketball team last year, the newspaper reported.

Police would not state a motive behind the attack or name the person whom Adams allegedly struck. The school has its homecoming game this week, the paper reported.
