Coach: Dad said 'I'm going to shoot you' during Little League game

The coach who said he was threatened by a parent of one of his Little League players testified today that Wade Campbell was "screaming" at him during the June 22 game on St. Paul's east side.

"I know where you live," Noe Ambriz quoted Campbell as saying. " 'I'm going to shoot you, boy,' were the words that were coming out of his mouth when he was approaching me. I was scared by this time."

Ambriz, who coached the team of 11- and 12-year-olds with his wife's help, got even more frightened when a police officer told him two days later that he would be wise to take precautions to protect his family, he said.

"To hear those words coming from an officer - you can imagine how I felt," he testified.

Campbell, 47, is on trial in Ramsey County District Court on a charge of making terroristic threats to Ambriz.

The testimony continues this afternoon.

If you are so wrapped up in your kid's athletics that death threats seem reasonable, you shouldn't have been breeding. Get an adult hobby. Geez, hire a hooker or something.
