The Varsity baseball coach in the Indian River Central School District has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

State Police say 46-year old Lloyd Smith was allegedly performing MMA maneuvers on a 16-year old male student at the Indian River High School.

Police say one of the maneuvers was a choke-hold type move, which caused the teen to become unconscious.

They say the student then fell to the ground and struck his head on a glass and metal door.

Smith was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the Town of Philadelphia Court.
