Martin TremblayRICHMOND, B.C. – Martin Tremblay must serve 15 days in jail after admitting he purposely tripped a 13-year-old hockey player while coaching his son’s minor league team.

In June of last year, Tremblay was a volunteer coach for the UBC Hornets peewee hockey team as they played against Richmond Steel at the University of British Columbia. The Hornets ended up winning, but this did not stop the 48-year-old from venting against a 13-year-old player on the opposing team.

At the end of the match, as the two teams line up for the traditional post-match handshake (good game, good game, good game), amateur video captured Tremblay intentionally tripping the 13-year-old and then, as the crowd booed, pointing at the boy aggressively as he lay on the ice.

According to witnesses, Tremblay had been mocking the boy throughout the game, insulting his skating and calling him “twinkle toes.” Later, in the locker room, Tremblay admitted he’d intentionally tripped the boy, who ended up injuring his wrist in the fall and had to wear a cast.

After pleading pleaded guilty to one count of assault in November, prosecutors asked for Tremblay to be placed under house arrest for 30 days. The defense asked for a suspended sentenced coupled with a large fine. But Judge Patrick Chen denied them both and sentenced Tremblay to a harsher sentence of 15 days in jail.

Describing the attack as akin to a “cowardly sucker punch on an unsuspecting victim,” the judge said “society will not tolerate the assault of children by adults.” He hopes that by sticking Tremblay with some jail time, a signal will be sent to other parents about their behavior during children’s sports events.

Tremblay’s defense attorney said that his client was not expecting  such a harsh sentence, he will not be filing an appeal. He said Tremblay will follow the conditions in order to make amends.

“He lost his wife, he lost a number of construction contracts, he’s rebuilding his life after this incident,” Bob Bellows said outside court. “He’s paid a heavy price for his actions that day.”

He added that Tremblay will likely never coach hockey again and has also been barred from his position as a leader with Scouts Canada.

    at first i was like “wow jailtime” but after reading and seeing .. good he deserved it that mf’r i woulda beat his head into the ice if that was my kid, nice way to teach kids to be bullies

  • Sean Cudahy

    What a scumbag

  • Athena

    What an entitled-feeling douchebag. “He paid a hefty price,” did he? That’s one way to look at it. But is it really a hefty price when you’re simply loosing all the things you never deserved to begin with? I mean, you know that if he was this brazenly fucked up in public, to a child, he was surely a severe prick to his wife any anyone else he felt superior to.

  • Gee

    That was so pathetic….. Absolute Douche bag

  • JGo555

    Hockey is fucking serious shit in Canada.

    And he got more time than some paedos get for molesting kids. It ain’t a HARSH sentence one bit. Suck it, fucker.

  • Andyman

    Wow that was worth it. NOT. What an asshole.

  • Coyote

    I thought learning how to take a sucker punch was normal hockey tradition.

  • Buffettgirl

    Shades of the dicksack my Mom married when I was 10… What an sad, empty, pathetic man, to feel so threatened by a child’s success that he does this? Waste of water and oxygen…

  • Wildheart

    Probably exactly why his wife left him and this just gave her the impetus.

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    And, always experiment on other parents kids, so you won’t look stupid in front of the wife and kids. And, don’t even mention, the screaming and hollering in pain. How’s a person to sleep when its your child screaming?

  • techsupp0rt

    Wasn’t expecting such a ‘harsh sentence’ of just over 2 weeks for assaulting a child? Go to hell, dickhat. At least his wife was smart and left his bitchass.

  • midniteshadows

    Seriously x 100? Really?

    “He’s paid a heavy price for his actions that day.”

    What? Am I supposed to feel sorry for this man because he “paid a heavy price”? Asshole. He showed his true colors – an immoral, unethical, valueless piece of flesh. If you act like an asshole, expect to be treated like one. Peckerhead.

  • Dillon_Lewandowski

    what a stupid punk.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Parents can be so rationally retarded when their children are competing in a sport. What a fucking moron.

  • Kasie K

    I think she died. IT SAYS LOST hiS WIFE

  • Peosh

    Wow everyone is so ready to jump on the bandwagon when the child is wearing knee pads and full hockey gear. Of course he is an immature prick for doing that but there is absolutely no harm done. The only thing accomplished by this is to show how much of a loser the coach is. Was the child hurt? Fuck no. Was there tax payer money wasted? Fuck yeah. Two weeks in jail is micro managing the population which the local government should not do. The coach should have lost his job and that should have been the end of it.

  • cedric

    Now here’s a guy who really gets his foot into the game.I can almost hear what he was thinking right before he tripped the kid “The lil Bastard is going to score – NOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!” BLAM !!! “Opps.”

  • Vindictive

    Reading is fundamental “Tremblay admitted he’d intentionally tripped the boy, who ended up injuring his wrist in the fall and had to wear a cast.”
    And I think two weeks is fair for a bullying asshole.

  • Sara

    The child WAS hurt. His wrist was injured and he had to wear a cast. But even if he wasn’t hurt, the man’s actions were illegal. In a civilized society, people can’t go around assaulting others. I think the jail sentence was warranted.

  • darsa

    I hope his son has the sense to know what a douche his dad was.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I guess a bunch of his construction contracts died as well, then. I hope they had nice funerals.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    A GROWN MAN assaulted A CHILD. You fucking idiot. And the child WAS hurt. 2 weeks wasn’t CLOSE to long enough.

  • http://www.facebook.com/deadbolt85 debiate5

    Illiterate much? The article states that the child was injured in the fall. Maybe you should read the whole article before you open your flapping cunt of a mouth.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I have found most people don’t read past the title. One of these days I am going to do what I promised, and start throwing in a fake article in the mix.

  • 18th40

    With the stories this site has featured over the years, what would be left to pass off as fake ?

  • Athena

    This made me LOL. At the office. Damn you. Keep up the good work.

  • newstarshipsmell

    You forgot to put “good” in quotes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/deadbolt85 debiate5

    Please do. Here’s one for you: “Debiate5 declared world’s greatest sex machine.”

  • James

    At first, I was like “wow jail-time for that?” but then I realized if this happened to me, I would really be pissed, hurt and would understand how that teen felt. Good message from the judge as usually, I never heard of jail-time for
    something like this; a similar incident at my school was probation and
    community service for this one senior. This should bring the word out on
    all bullies. Adult acting like an undisciplined child is too ridiculous as we are in 2013 now. Hell, that is a bit offensive as most children act better than this pig.

  • Cory

    Why did I find this story funny oh ya because most the kids these days are disrespectful anyways Not saying go out and beat up little kids but when I hear stories like this it warms my heart fuck all these disrespectful little fuck wits anyways hahahahhahaahhahahahah

  • JohnQknowitall

    Have you ever been to a kid’s hockey game? 99% of the fathers and 50% of the mothers should be banned from the games. Toddlers and Tiaras moms look sane next to those parents.

  • JohnQknowitall

    You have the best observations.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Hmmm… My guess is property protection as well as finally seeing what an unhealthy person he is in the light of day… maybe he wore her down and she lost track of where her marriage started. Fortunately she found where it ended.

  • 18th40

    Hardly, as a matter of fact there are rules laid out for parents, coaches and team managers that are signed and filed with the leagues at the start of each season. In addition, each team has safety reps, parent reps and individuals in charge of parent conduct in the stands. You’re referring to a bygone era which quite frankly is why this clown left that rink alive after that embarrassment, 20 years ago he wouldn’t have. We’ve worked hard to change that image, idiots like this do us no favours.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Glad things have changed in the last year.

  • 18th40

    My apologies John, I didn’t mean to sound that snarky.

  • JohnQknowitall

    You were not snarky. In the last six months I have heard the screaming and yelling parents at the games. Nothing physical other than arm waiving and slobbering when yelling. Rude, immature and just behind the near rage line. Being near the US Mason Dixon line, things here might be different.

  • 18th40

    Yes I thought of that after I responded, not that we don’t have parents in my area that don’t go over the top, but in the interest of letting the kids just enjoy the game and have fun, those parents are generally dealt with. We just had a father (in Canada) banned for the remainder of his son’s season for yelling at an opposing player and then having words with the players father, he made front page news for days. So things here anyway have certainly improved.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Either that or he took her out to the wilderness and “lost” her. I dunno where she stumbled off to after the beating she took.

  • restlessvagabond

    On the other hand… Maybe the kid WAS a twinkle toes.
