CHURCH HILL — Two spectators were arrested Monday evening at a Church Hill city league football practice for 9- to 11-year-olds after an exchange of ugly text messages allegedly escalated into a fistfight.

Marty Joe Black, 34, 153 Glendale Drive, Church Hill, was arrested and charged with domestic assault along with a 15-year-old male whose mother was in a long-term relationship with Black that recently ended.

Church Hill Police Chief Mark Johnson said Black apparently lived with the boy’s mother and helped raise the boy. During the football practice Monday, the boy reportedly observed Black at the practice with another woman and began texting Black.
