(North Richland Hills-AP) -- Pete Incaviglia is in trouble with the law.

W-F-A-A T-V reports the former Texas Rangers outfielder has been cited for simple assault in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills after an incident at his son's hockey game.

It happened last month during a pee wee league, three-on-three game at the Blue Line Ice Complex in North Richland Hills.

Home video shows Incaviglia's son was checked in the back while trying to score. A penalty was called, and a penalty shot awarded.

The opposing coach and team players say Incaviglia approached their bench and threatened them. A parent filed a criminal complaint against Incaviglia, but he denies the allegations.

Ice rink officials say it's the second incident involving Incavilglia in less than a year. They say he was banned from coaching at the rink after a run-in with a referee last November.

He says he knows nothing about such an incident.
