A junior hockey coach in Vancouver has reportedly been arrested and released and is awaiting charges after he tripped a 13-year-old boy during a postgame handshake line last weekend. The UBC Hornets coach, Martin Tremblay, had just coached his team to a 5-4 victory before the classless postgame antics were unleashed. As you can see from the screenshot above that was taken from this video of the incident, Tremblay clearly tripped two of the Richmond Steel players.

Steel manager Tammy Hohlweg, who saw the entire situation unfold, says one of the boys who was tripped suffered a broken wrist and will be in a cast for two weeks.

“He was just trying to shake hands,” Hohlweg explained. “The game was over. No matter what happens in a game, our rule is you shake hands, you do what you’re supposed to do at the end.”

After the trip, the crowd presumably began yelling at Tremblay. As you can also see in the video, he responded by giving them the finger as his players yelled alongside him and one of them threw a water bottle at the glass.

“Actually seeing it is horrifying,” Hohlweg said. “He should not be allowed around kids. No more coaching for this coach. If a coach is like that, the kids will feed off that – the kids will react and do that too.”

Regardless of what the 13-year-old could have possibly done during the game to anger Tremblay, there’s absolutely no excuse for that type of behavior. The fact that he chose to trip a young boy and then turn around and flip people off immediately afterward is disturbing, to say the least. Hohlweg is right that he has no business being allowed around kids after that.
