Mom arrested for beating soccer coach with chair

An East Rockaway soccer mom angered over being dropped from the team e-mail list for game-day directions was arrested after slamming a metal folding chair across the face of her daughter's coach, police said yesterday.

Alicia Vigil, 33, of 168 Main St., was charged Monday with second-degree reckless endangerment in the 2:45 p.m. attack Sunday in Elmont.

Vigil, who was released without bail pending a Nov. 1 court date, said yesterday that she didn't hit Nassau Queens coach Sam Schwarzman.

Schwarzman, 67, who suffered a cut to the lip and cheek in the attack, countered that Vigil is telling "a total lie."

It is the second incident in a week in which a parent is accused of having a violent encounter with a coach. Last Wednesday, the father and uncle of a Bellmore youth league baseball player were arrested on assault charges after allegedly attacking the boy's coach.

Both sides in Monday's incident agreed that Vigil brought her daughter, 12, who was injured and did not play, to watch the game at Sewanhaka High School. They differed on what happened after the Nassau Queens' 3-2 loss to the Floral Park Fireballs. Vigil said she approached Schwarzman after the game and asked why he stopped e-mailing her directions to visiting games. He responded with a torrent of curses, she said.

"He called me a -- and criticized me for being a single mother," she said. "I was so afraid. I was so scared that he was going to do something to me."

Vigil said she just walked away with her daughter, who was on crutches.

In contrast, police and Schwarzman said Vigil approached the coach and cursed him. "She came running across the field," Schwarzman said.

He said he took her off the e-mail list because she e-mailed "nasty letters" about practices and other matters.

Schwarzman, of East Rockaway, admitted he made a negative remark about the woman being a single mother with two daughters, ages 12 and 10. But he said he tried to avoid the confrontation by walking to his car.

Vigil followed, picked up a nearby folding chair and, in view of her daughter, "slammed me in the face with it three times," Schwarzman said. "I never touched her."

He said her eldest daughter and his daughter attended the same school and played on his team. "This is the first incident I have ever had," said Schwarzman, a four-year volunteer coach. Vigil's daughter, who injured her knee in a junior high soccer game, has been on the Nassau Queens of the Lynbrook/East Rockaway Soccer Club about a year and a half, he said.

So far, there has been no action taken against the girl or her mother, said Soccer Club President Guy Punzi. He said no parents have ever filed a complaint against Schwarzman.

"He's a volunteer who stepped up to coach the team when no one else would," Punzi said.
Nice example these parents are teaching their kids

She's not being charged with assault?

And, parents are completely out of control. I ref hockey, any building I work where I'm allowed to throw parents out, I will. There's too many nuts.

The "--" is Newsday's way of not printing politically incorrect word. My guess is he either called her a cunt or a n**ger. It's East Rockaway, so it's possible that he called her a n**ger cunt.

I was an umpire for my town's baseball league from the time I was 16 until this past season. Some drunk parent didn't like the call I made against his son. Me, being a former high school defensive tackle and college shot putter, and weighing in at just over 245, challenged him to a fight after the half inning was over. The crowd actually had balls enough to throw him out of the stands and get him out of there before I rearranged his face!

I finished the game, and the next day, the leader of the umpiring organization heard of the incident and was going to keep me off the schedule for a couple games. I told him don't bother and quit. It was the only thing I ever quit in my entire damn life.

I've had quite enough of these shitbag parents ruining their kids fun and living their empty pathetic lives through them every step of the way! Fuck 'em all!

The sad thing is that most of these parents think that by carrying on they are actually enhancing their kids' enjoyment because they'll be playing more or won't be called out etc. It's really pathetic
