A 39-year-old has been placed under arrest after his despicable actions during a high school basketball game.
39-year-old convicted felon Thaddis Brooks was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly punch as many as three female athletes during a girls’ basketball game in Corona, California. It all went down on January 24th between the Centennial High School Huskies and Santiago High School Sharks when players began shoving each other after a scrum over the ball which led to a foul call.
Police state that a man made his way down from the stands and punched several of the players who were 16 and 17 years old. The game would be suspended.
The worst of the situation came afterward.
“As the suspect left the gymnasium, witnesses heard him mention he was getting a gun,” the statement read. “The suspect walked to the parking lot and retrieved a handgun from his vehicle. While in the parking lot, the suspect pointed the handgun at several students and threatened to shoot them. The suspect fled the area just before officers arrived at the school.”

“While in the parking lot, the suspect pointed his handgun at several more female students and threatened to shoot them,” Corona Police Sgt. Jason Waldon told The Los Angeles Times via email.
No firearm would be found after serving a search warrant at Brooks’ residence, however, officers found 40 dogs on the property, and City of Perris Animal Control Services believed “animal cruelty factors” were present due to the residence’s conditions.
