Video: Arvada High School Basketball Coach Throws Girl By Her Hair

 

 

 

” It’s a stunning video that is sure to spark debate.

  A fight breaks out at a girls varsity basketball game between Arvada and Alameda High Schools.

  As adults run onto the court to break it up, the Arvada High School coach grabs one of his players by her hair and throws her several feet to the ground.

  The video shows one shocked fan in the stands pointing at what the coach had just done and raising his hands in disbelief.

  The girl was kicked off the team and suspended from school. The coach, who also teaches at Arvada High School, was not punished.

  When the fight erupted, Areeon Frilot, a sophomore player, was sitting on the Arvada High bench.

” My intentions were to go and break up the fight and grab my girl off of their girl,” the teen said.

” I got to about the three point line and that’s when I felt someone grab my hair from the back and throw me,” Areeon said. “My first reaction was that I just got thrown by another girl from the team.”

  As the video shows, it was no girl. It was her head coach, Roger Griffin, who grabbed her by the hair and tossed the girl down.

” I was just shocked, like I can’t believe that the one person I trusted out of everybody in school was the one to do that to me,” the teen said. “

 

     Coach Griffin should be the one suspended arrested and charged with assault . This is a shameful display of a lack of self-control on the part of an adult expected to inspire our children . This man has serious anger management issues .
