A Blue Rock man was convicted earlier this week for assulting a high school football coach. Lawrence County Municipal Judge Donald Capper convicted 39-year old Kerry Newlon on the misdemeanor count on Wednesday. The judge ruled Newlon tackled and punched Crooksville coach Doug Clifford on November 2nd as fans rushed the field to celebrate the team's playoff victory at Chesapeake. Authorities say the altercation started when Newlon's brother, New Lexington Police Cheif Jeffrey Newlon argued with Clifford because the Chief's son did not get more playing time. Kerry Newlon faces up to six months in jail and a thousand dollar fine at his May 13th sentencing.
