No Felony Charges For Alleged Choke-Hold Coach

No Felony Charges For Alleged Choke-Hold Coach

Posted: Updated:

There will be no felony charges for the Indian River baseball coach accused of using a choke hold on a player.

A Jefferson County grand jury declined to indict 46 year old Lloyd Kevin Smith, who is accused of choking a player unconscious.

Smith will still face misdemeanor charges of second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

A three-month stay-away order of protection was granted for the 16 year old alleged victim.

The alleged incident happened in April. State police say Smith was demonstrating mixed martial arts moves to the player.

Police say one of the moves was a choke hold, which led to the student losing consciousness and hitting his head on a metal and glass door.
