High school basketball player and his brother arrested for assaulting coach

WILLIS, TX – A high school basketball player and his older brother from Texas are facing charges after allegedly assaulting their coach. The incident reportedly occurred last week after the teenager was sidelined during a game for unsporting behavior towards an opponent.

The accused, 17-year-old Jevin Allen, and his 22-year-old brother Jarrick Allen, were charged with assaulting a public servant. The alleged assault took place when the coach returned to the school from a game in Conroe, according to officials from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

The coach reportedly noticed Jevin Allen and his family waiting in the parking lot of Willis High School after the game. The family was reportedly angry with the coach for benching Jevin. When the coach returned to the school and saw the family still in the parking lot, a verbal altercation ensued.

According to police, Jevin Allen allegedly punched the coach in the face, and Jarrick Allen joined in the attack. Another coach and several bystanders tried to intervene and stop the fight. After the altercation, the Allen brothers reportedly fled the scene.

The brothers were later arrested and detained in the Montgomery County Jail. They were released on bonds of $23,000 each. School officials have confirmed that Jevin Allen is no longer a student at Willis High School.

The school district released a statement, stating, “The investigation is ongoing, but we did determine that the student’s address was no longer valid, so he has been withdrawn from the district. We are deeply saddened by this incident and will not tolerate this behavior from students.” The coach is said to be recovering from his injuries.
