There’s no turning the other cheek in dodgeball!

A youth minister in Missouri has been charged with assault for for allegedly knocking down a 16-year-old boy and kicking him in the groin during a dodgeball game.

Authorities say the teen had missed David Boudreaux with one throw, but then knocked his glasses off with another.

The boy apologized, but authorities say Boudreaux pushed him backward and then kicked him in the groin when the teen got up again.

Court records say the boy suffered whiplash, post-concussion syndrome and other injuries.

Prosecutors say Boudreaux later apologized, but an administrator at Crescent Lake Christian Academy says he's been placed on administrative leave.
