SANDY LAKE TWP, Pa. (WKBN) – A wrestling coach with a Mercer County school was charged after an altercation with a student last month.
According to a police report, Daniel James Osborne, 41, is facing harassment and disorderly conduct charges in connection to a Feb. 25 incident at Lakeview Elementary School where police say he grabbed a 14-year-old student by the ankles and threw him. The student landed on his chest and head. The report also states that Osborne shouted obscenities at the teen in front of other students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.
The altercation occurred during practice, according to police.
The victim did not report any injuries.
While Osborne was listed as a wrestling coach on the police report, the school’s website lists a Dan Osborne as a maintenance and transportation supervisor. A call made to the superintendent’s office was not immediately returned.
