Westwood NJ,  A peewee football league has banned a parent and his family for life after the father allegedly snapped when his son was rotated out as quarterback on a flag football team and attacked a teenage coach.

Peter Iappelli,  50, who earns $171,136 a year as school business administrator in Closter, was charged Wednesday by Westwood Police  with simple assault and disorderly conduct after allegedly placing the 16-year-old coach in a chokehold.

Westwood Youth Football is for 6 to 12-year-olds and Westwood Youth Football is a founding member of newly created and formed NNJJFL ( The Northern New Jersey Junior Football League).
