Many youth sports coaches will tell you that one of their biggest headaches is dealing with parents. Usually, parents will wait until after the game to voice their displeasure.

But at one basketball event recently, a parent apparently came out of the stands and sat on the bench, briefly, to voice displeasure with a coach -- during a game.

The coach, after an apparent heated conversation, sent the parent to the stands.
