LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing a felony assault charge after authorities say he attacked a deputy sheriff at a high school lacrosse game.
According to police, the alleged attack occurred at a Varsity lacrosse game between Trinity High School and Saint Xavier High School.
The game took place at Trinity High School on Friday night.
Authorities say that after the game, a small group of people walked out onto the field. One of those individuals was 18-year-old Daylan Hall.
Someone got on the intercom and announced that if the group didn't leave the field, they would be arrested.
Hall didn't leave, and was eventually approached by a Jefferson County deputy sheriff, who was providing security for the game. Police say the deputy sheriff grabbed Hall by the shirt to escort him off the field.
At that point, Hall allegedly punched the deputy sheriff in the face, damaging his glasses and scraping his face.
Hall then ran away.
Authorities were able to identify Hall in short order, after talking to representatives of Trinity High School, who identified him as someone who had been a student there at one time.
A representative of Saint Xavier told WDRB News by phone that Hall had also been a student at that school, graduating as a member of the class of 2011.
A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was taken into custody shortly before 5 a.m. on Tuesday.
Hall has been charged with third-degree assault of a police or probation officer. That charge is a felony.
