Report: Scott McDonald takes plea deal

Scott McDonald, the RIT women’s hockey coach who hit a man in the jaw in December, pleaded guilty to harassment for that act on Thursday, according to 13WHAM.

Taylor Scott, a player on an opposing team, pressed assault charges after McDonald hit him during a recreational hockey game in Perinton, N.Y. The punch knocked out teeth and caused nerve damage.

The court ordered McDonald to pay restitution, according to the report, and will fully sentence him next month.
