The coach arrived and entered the school, and when he came back out to the parking lot, Allen and his family are accused of confronting him.

Police were able to track down the brothers, and they were arrested and charged with assault on a public servant. They were both released after posting a $23,000 bond each.

“The investigation is ongoing, but we did determine that the student’s address was no longer valid, so he has been withdrawn from the district," the Willis Independent School District said in a statement, KHOU reported. "We are deeply saddened by this incident and will not tolerate this behavior from students."

Authorities said the coach is recovering.
