A youth hockey coach in Canada, not happy with how a game turned out, took matters into his own hands during the postgame handshake, committing a classless act that landed him in jail.

The unnamed coach, who appears to be in his 40s, can be seen in the video below tripping a 13-year-old who helped defeat the coach's team in a game in British Columbia.

"The coach was arrested. Charges will be forwarded at a later date, pending the results of the investigation," police told the (Toronto) Globe and Mail.

The young player suffered minor injuries to his wrist and forearms, which he used to cushion his fall to the ice.
