ATF agent faces charges for high school football game assault (VIDEO)

Special Agent Marc Delpit with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms faces an aggravated assault charge for allegedly beating a man and threatening a high school football crowd at gunpoint.

Houston Police spokesman said the incident took place around 8 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of St. Thomas High School during halftime of the varsity football game between St. Thomas and Angleton high schools.

Delpit is the father a St. Thomas varsity football player, and the alleged victim is a teammate’s father.

It’s unclear if it was the stress of being a federal agent or his love of high school football is what pushed him to the edge.
