The mother, Sharon Hardy, 40, of Elizabeth, allegedly began arguing with a coach when another coach, Christopher Trout, 40, of New City, tried to intervene, said Montvale Police, NewJersey.com reported.
Trout told police Hardy ran up to him and got in his face, screaming and spitting, then slapped him across the face with keys in her hand, NewJersey.com reported.
Hardy told officers Trout came up to her and spit at her and in return, she smacked Trout in the head with an open palm and he punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground, NewJersery.com said.
