Fight breaks out at football game

Posted: Updated:

BOSSIER CITY, La. (KNOE 8 News) - There was some rough housing at the Block High School football game last Friday night. But it didn't involve the players,  and all of it was caught on video.

The video was taken by a fan at the Block High School football game this past Friday in Bossier City. As you can clearly see, a volunteer coach was involved in a flight that also included a Catahoula Parish school teacher and the coach's pregnant wife.

Chris Kimball, a volunteer strength and conditioning coach from Block High School says his wife was confronted by Harrisonburg Elementary teacher, Shanda Odom.  

In the video, it appears as the coach's wife walks away from Odom, but was then followed.

Odom then appears to push the coach's wife to the side, then Odom allegedly begins to punch the coach.

"At that point I restrained her and sat her down on the front row, as the video is very clear to point out," Kimball said. "And she stood back up again and again began to assault. And when more and more people came, you can see her going over people and going over my wife to assault me."

Kimball says after the fight was broken up, he was surprised to find out that he was the one being arrested.

"I was very shocked by because we did have the video and there were people around us ready to give their statement, but not one single person was asked what happened," Kimball said.

Kimball's also accusing Odom's husband, Jeffery, the principal at Block High School of trying to cover up the incident.

"In fact he has asked several students,  and we have statements from these parents, that he took their phones and asked them to delete the video," Kimball said.

Bossier City police say they have the video,  and are taking a very close look at it.

The Catahoula Parish School District released a statement acknowledging the incident. They say they're confident they won't experience another similar incident. 

As for the  Kimballs, Ashli Kimball, Chris' wife, is eight months pregnant. We're told she's been having contractions since the fight. Chris has resigned as a volunteer coach and he says they are exploring their legal options.
