If you've ever played pickup basketball before, then you know how frustrating it can be when someone continuously fouls you. But during a 2-on-2 pickup game at the Holly Hill School in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Tuesday night, 27-year-old Travis Mims—a "campus advisor" at the school—took things way too far after getting into it with 33-year-old teacher Katherine Martin. And a confrontation between the two ended with Mims getting arrested and Martin needing medical attention.
According to a police report, the 6-foot-2, 260-pound Mims attacked Martin on the court after she "pushed his face with her hands" during an argument about fouls. He reportedly picked her up, turned her upside down, and threw her to the ground while a couple of students that they were playing with watched. Martin's head hit the ground first, causing her to sustain "serious and permanent" injuries, and the police were called to intervene. Mims was arrested a short time later and charged with felony aggravated battery.
You can see Mims pick Martin up and slam her to the ground in the surveillance video above. It's both very scary and very sad.
