39-year-old Youth Football Coach Dontavious Lee Smith (AKA ‘Coach Tay’) is charged with two counts of domestic assault after his children attempted to intervene during and after an assault on his wife. Smith reportedly assaulted and strangled his 15-year-old son when the child attempted to break up a physical assault between Smith and his wife.
When his daughter, who is pregnant, learned of the assault she came to the residence to confront him and he reportedly hit her in the face, causing her to make the 911 call. Smith had fled the scene when police arrived. He was arrested days later and is now free on a $12,500 bond.
