Charges against sparrow-biting coach dropped


Remember this story about the high school gym coach that bit a live sparrow’s head off in front of his wrestling team and claimed it was “innocent fun” and that “If I can kill one sparrow, one time, and it have a positive impact on 15 kids, in my mind it’s worthwhile”? Well, the charges against him have been dropped. He could have faced a maximum $5,000 fine and a year in prison, but instead served only a two-week suspension without pay imposed and was suspended indefinitely from the Cloverdale Police Department, where he is a reserve officer. The charges were dropped in exchange for two whole days (yeah, that was enough) of community service.
