Tennessee State defensive end Latrelle Lee was kicked off the football team and expelled from school after punching strength coach T.J. Greenstone in the head on the sidelines during a game. It seems to have gotten worse, as the Tennessean is reporting Lee was charged with a felony, one count of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
Here is video of the incident:
Greenstone, a former Vanderbilt player, fell to the ground after the punches. The video does not show much of what happens before and after the punches, but the strikes seem to come out of nowhere and there doesn’t appear to be a major confrontation happening at the time.
According to the report, the coach was walking up and down the sideline, making sure players weren’t too close to the field.
Lee was booked Monday night and is out on bail.
Lee played in 16 games (starting six) prior to his expulsion.
