WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say they plan to arrest some of the people who beat up a coach at a junior football league practice.

Lt. James Espinoza told KAKE-TV (https://bit.ly/1rZ0kjr ) on Thursday that charges are pending and arrests will be made “in the near future.” He says several people involved in the Monday fight have been banned from the league.

Police say the fight began in Wichita’s Linwood Park after one man complained his son wasn’t getting enough playing time. They say six men attacked the coach, with one using brass knuckles and another indicating he had a gun.

They say the coach’s wife pulled out a gun and fired a shot into the air. No one was seriously hurt.

A league representative says the coach is no longer with the team.
