WATCH: Dad Arrested After Tackling Student At Son's Wrestling Match

Some parents just can't enjoy their kids' sporting events. A North Carolina father has now been arrested and charged with simple assault after he tackled a high school student-athlete during his kid's wrestling match.

Barry Lee Jones tackled the student while he was wrestling his son. It seems that at some point during the match, the student performed an illegal takedown of his son.

The match was stopped for just a minute and before they could resume, Jones came out of nowhere and tackled the kid. He was processed at the County Jail and received a $1,000 secured bond. The student-athlete was reportedly not injured.
