CUMMING, Ga. — A woman alleges she feared for her safety after the assistant coach of her daughter’s team threatened her, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On May 1, a mother who took her daughter to play a baseball game at Central Park, 2300 Keith Bridge Road, told deputies she asked the assistant coach to be fair with her daughter when coaching.

She said there had been arguments before with her daughter and the assistant coach’s daughter in which he had been unsportsmanlike.

The mother said she had cheered her daughter on, and the assistant coach said she was a bad parent.

He allegedly told her, “If I see you outside the park, you will be a dead woman.”

A witness said he heard the assistant coach say that and that “he was out of line.”

Deputies talked to the assistant coach, and he eventually told them he had threatened the mother.

Mark Meister, 47, was later charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.
