AMORY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Amory police are investigating an incident that took place during Thursday night's basketball doubleheader with Hamilton.

An investigator says that Hamilton girls basketball coach Sue Verner was struck by a parent following the girls' basketball game.

The investigator says the parent left the gym, but later turned herself in to Amory Police. 36-year-old Heather Lynn Thompson is charged with simple assault on a school official.

Amory Police Chief Ronnie Bowen says she was transferred to the Monroe County Detention Center in Aberdeen and will likely have a bond hearing Friday.

Bowen adds that Verner has been released from the hospital and will likely be interviewed before Thompson's bond hearing
