Willis, Texas – A high school basketball player in Willis, Texas, and his brother were arrested for attacking their coach in the parking lot following a game. The incident occurred on Tuesday at approximately 9:52 p.m. when a coach for Willis Independent School District (I.S.D.) was assaulted by several individuals, including Jevin Allen, a 17-year-old student.
According to authorities, Allen had been benched during the game due to his behavior towards an opposing team player, which angered him and his family. After the game between Willis and Conroe, Allen and his family waited in the school parking lot for the coach. When the coach arrived, a verbal confrontation broke out, and Allen allegedly punched the coach in the face. Furthermore, Allen’s brother, 22-year-old Jarrick Allen, also joined in assaulting the coach.
The attack left the coach with injuries to his head, neck, face, and arms. Thankfully, another coach and several bystanders intervened and stopped the fight. The suspects fled the scene, but deputies later located and arrested them on charges of assault on a public servant.
Both Jevin Allen and Jarrick Allen were booked at the Montgomery County Jail and released after posting a $23,000 bond each. The school district confirmed in a statement that Jevin Allen is no longer enrolled, and they expressed their deep sadness over the incident, emphasizing that such behavior will not be tolerated.
The Coach for Willis I.S.D. is expected to make a full recovery from the injuries sustained during the assault. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and further details have yet to be released by authorities.
