Fifty-two-year-old Steven Wilson of Eagan was arrested and booked into the Dakota County Jail after the altercation, which took place Saturday in a hallway at Lakeville South High School.

Witnesses told officers that nearby parents stepped in when they saw Wilson punch his son in the face after his team lost. The teen did not require medical attention.

KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/vX1HgI ) reports Wilson posted bond and was released from jail.

Wilson deferred comment Monday to his attorney, who did not immediately return a phone message.
