Dad interrupts high school soccer game to remove his son for bad grades

We go to Iowa City to meet another sterling candidate for father of the year. Here’s the Press-Citizen‘s report on compassionate soccer dad Benjamin Doyle:

According to an Iowa City police criminal complaint, as officers were observing the City High boys’ soccer game at Longfellow Elementary School Wednesday evening, they witnessed a man run onto the field and attempt to pull his son out of the game.

Doyle told police that he wanted to remove his son because of bad grades, even though the school and the boy’s mom said his grades were good enough to continue playing on the team.

It’s nice he cares about his son’s academics, but he displayed a total lack of parental tact. He admitted that he knew he wasn’t allowed to go on the field and that he let his temper “get the best of him.”

Police charged Doyle with trespassing, a simple misdemeanor, while his son has been charged with having a crazy dad. At least his actions were safer than the last crazy soccer dad.
