A Memphis-area mother is facing aggravated assault charges after attacking her sons’ little league football coach with a baseball bat. According to the no-nonsense mother, the coach had molested her sons and, upon seeing him, she simply couldn’t control herself.
The New York Daily News relates:
“I didn’t intend to do whatever I did to him,” said [Lakeshia Richmond]. “I apologize, but I don’t apologize for what happened to my kids.”
She claimed one of her sons told her Saturday that [Tony Massey] touched him inappropriately. “I said, ‘was it just you?’ and he said ‘no, it was some more kids,’” she told WREG.
Later Saturday, she saw Massey walking alone and grabbed the bat from the trunk of her car.
“When I see him, I see my kids being hurt and that’s all I see,” Richmond said.
Cops found Massey “shirtless and bleeding from the head and face,” according to WMC-TV, and later arrested Richmond on charges of aggravated assault.
Massey has not been arrested but police are reportedly investigating the abuse allegations. He remains in the hospital in serious condition.

“I did what I had to do; I put it in God’s hands,” she remarked.
