Kansas Suspect in Junior Football Beating Charged

Associated Press - November 3, 2014 6:41 pm

Prosecutors have charged a suspect in September’s beating of a Wichita junior league football coach.

The Sedgwick County district attorney’s office announced Monday that 31-year-old Bobby Brown Jr. was charged Friday with aggravated battery. His preliminary hearing is Nov. 13.

Police told reporters Monday that Brown was spotted by officers Thursday in the driveway of a Wichita house. He took off running and was arrested after a foot chase.

The case stems from the Sept. 8 attack by several men on the coach during practice at a Wichita park.

The beating stopped after the coach’s wife drew a gun and fired a shot in the air. The coach then went to his car and retrieved another gun. Both had concealed carry permits.
