John Kasik, 61, also is accused of battering Lisle High School Athletic Director Dan Dillard during a confrontation at school offices. Police arrested Kasik at his home on the 4400 block of Arbor View Drive on Friday. He was charged with felony telephone harassment and misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct.

Confrontation With Football Coach Ends In Parent's Arrest - by Mike Phillips
"After talking with the arresting officer, as well as a few who were on the scene at the time of the incident, I have gathered the following information: A parent came onto our practice field during practice this afternoon and confronted Coach Fabrizio, accusing him of striking or grabbing her child. This information was given to the parent from her son. The confrontation occurred in front of players, coaches, and bystanders," Dowling said. "Coach Fabrizio did not put his hands on the player in question. This was confirmed by the police officer, after his interview with several who were there at the time of the alleged incident. "Several attempts to calm the parent down (as well as to ask the parent to leave the field) proved ineffective. After the parent struck Coach Fabrizio in the face with a finger, the police were called, and the parent was arrested for disorderly conduct." (Views So Far 342 )
