A 52-year-old Newhall woman was arrested last week for allegedly attacking a Hart High School sports coach who had dropped her daughter from a varsity sports team, authorities said Wednesday.

The woman was arrested at her home Monday on suspicion of assaulting a school employee, according to arrest records. She was released from custody after posting $60,000 bail.

The alleged assault occurred on Nov. 16 on the Hart High School campus.

The mother allegedly struck the coach several times in the head and arms with her hands after she was told her daughter had been cut from a varsity sports team, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Lt. Brenda Cambra said in an e-mail.

The coach asked another school employee for help as the mother left the school, Cambra said.

The alleged assault left the coach’s face red and his glasses damaged, she said.

Hart High School officials could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.

The Signal chose to withhold the mother’s name to protect the identity of her underage daughter.
