YOUNGSVILLE, La. - The sister of a man accused of punching and breaking the nose of a Youngsville youth softball coach is in jail for obstruction of justice.

Sources say the 30-year-old Brown Park Athletics softball coach Charell Jackson surrendered to police Friday for misleading police during an investigation into a postgame brawl Tuesday night at the Youngsville Sports Complex. She is in jail on a $25,000 bond.

According to reports, Jackson's brother, 23-year-old Herman Lewis, was booked Thursday on a count of second-degree battery and has been released on $40,000 bail.

Jackson had told investigators she knew the man who threw a punch only as "Joe" and plucked him from the crowd that night to work in the game.
