No-contest plea in California baseball bat attack on coach

A California man has pleaded no contest to attacking his son's Little League baseball coach with a bat during a game last year.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office says 31-year-old Miguel Angel Mejia entered the plea Wednesday to one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors say Mejia swung the bat at the coach after the victim benched the defendant's son during a game in Pasadena. Other parents intervened.

Mejia was sentenced to three years of probation and was ordered to stay away from the victim, complete 45 days of state highway department work and take anger management classes.
