    Angry Football Coach Beats Wife with Concrete Block

    Bryan Adams coach out on bond after assault arrest


    Football head being held at Lew Sterrett Center


    01:26 PM CDT on Friday, August 31, 2007

    The head football coach at Bryan Adams was released from Dallas County jail early Friday after being accused of striking his wife in the head with a concrete block.


    Mike Smiddy

    Mike Smiddy, 36, was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury. Bond was set at $25,000, according to Lew Sterrett Justice Center records.

    Police said Smiddy and his wife were arguing Monday evening at their Far East Dallas duplex when he threw a folding chair at her. He then picked up a block and "forcefully and intentionally" struck her in the forehead, a police report states.
    What started the argument at their home in the 1700 block of Mariposa Drive remains unclear.

    Police said Smiddy refused to let his wife get medical help and took away her car keys and cellphone. She contacted a neighbor about three hours later and was taken to Doctors Hospital of Dallas, where she talked to officers.

    Police said the attack left part of her skull exposed and that she had bruises and scratches from other assaults by Smiddy.

    DISD athletic director Jeff Johnson said Smiddy is on administrative leave and declined to comment further on the case.

    The coach is 21-50 in seven seasons at Bryan Adams. His team finished 3-8 last year but made the playoffs for the first time since 1985. [who gives a fuck about his coaching record after he tried to kill his wife?]

    The Bryan Adams football team is scheduled to open its season tonight against Samuell. Bryan Adams defensive coordinator Dorman Pryor will be the interim head coach.

    No kidding.... Years ago I was sitting in a parking lot in a not too good part of town completing reports when I heard tires screeching and pop pop pop. I investigate and see two cars in a chase. The cars are shooting at each other in a running gun battle and I was able to get one of the cars stopped (stupid rookie move at the time I know). I am in a felony stop position waiting for back up to arrive when the first car that got away decides to turn around and find out why he's not being chased anymore. He comes right back to me and is now front bumper of his car to the front bumper of the car I stopped. I see one of the guns go flying out of the window on the car that returned and then I was faced with holding two car loads of suspects at bay until the calvary arrived.

    Point of the story was the arrested subjects in one car were local high school thugs who played on the football team. I got a ton of calls from all kinds of people trying to get me to speak to the judge to release the thugs because they were needed for a game that coming weekend... My response... NO FRIGGIN WAY!! Needless to say they probably got released anyway as they went around me after that. I have dealt with at least one of the thugs NUMEROUS times since then after he got out of prison on unrelated armed robbery charges...... Gotta love the system----NOT

    Bad husband and a pretty shitty coach from that record. How do you make the playoffs at 3-8?

    Assmonkey. No friggen excuse for that kind of behavior.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Wait, there's a football team named an effeminate Canadian 80's singer? Sorry for the bad joke. I say we impale him and hang a sign on him.

    Does anyone else smell a political favor for getting to the playoffs? Gotta love those sports icons. I hope she gets to land an iron frying pan to the side of his head in self defense.

    Sounds like an attempted murder to me... but who's to question the infinite wisdom of the DA?

    Dunno, but he sure is being treated gently. From another report :

    Police said Smiddy prevented his wife from getting medical help for several hours.

    When doctors examined Tina Smiddy, they found bruises and scratches from previous abuse.

    The coach presided over a pep rally at Bryan Adams Thursday afternoon but was arrested when he returned home.

    The Dallas Independent School District has put him on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

    If I'm not mistaken, just the act of taking away her cell phone during an emergency is a high misdmeanor or low felony in Texas...

    Which SHOULD ensure that the other charges go all the way, but you know how that goes.

    Favoritism is alive and well! Ain't that grand! At least for the shit that hit the woman. She should sue for divorce, get everything she can get her hands on and then leave town.

    Aside from the felony DV, and felony assault with a deadly weapon...taking away or destroying a phone to prevent someone seeking help is also a felony.

    Same here. It's listed in our statute book under witness tampering. Preventing someone from reporting that a crime occurred is a felony. Taking the phone prevented the reporting of the crime and is a good pop here.

    Yup, and I forgot to specify Cali....but we always make a point of documenting in the text of the call if someone calls from a neighbor because the phone was taken/destroyed, or the cord pulled out of the wall.
