Springfield School Superintendent Walter Milton says he does not intend to press charges against a man who punched him during an argument that broke out at a youth-league football game this month.
The State Journal-Register website reports it happened during a Springfield Boomers game in Rochester.
Both Milton and the other man are parents of players on the fourth grade team.
The other man reportedly got into a heated exchange with the team’s coach, and when Milton attempted to intervene, the man struck Milton.
Police reports say Milton struck the man back.
The man also reportedly got into an altercation with another parent.
Police were called and a report was sent to the State’s Attorney’s Office, but it has not yet been reviewed.
