A high school girls’ basketball coach in Cobb County, Ga., is facing multiple charges after she allegedly bit another coach in the face twice and threatened to beat the man, even throwing a chair inside a school office, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Melonie Joyce Martin, who coaches the South Cobb High School girls’ team, was standing next to coach Tyrone Harris when she bit him. An assistant principal and two other coaches reportedly witnessed Martin’s actions and threats on Jan. 9.  


“I’m about to beat your (expletive) and stomp you, and I’ll beat your (expletive) and knock your teeth out of your face,” Martin allegedly said, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Martin is also accused of throwing a chair at Harris and saying that she would burst his “grill” during the altercation, which occurred after South Cobb lost to Campbell High, AJC reports.

Martin was eventually arrested and charged with terroristic threats and acts and simple battery. She was released after posting $7,500 bond.
