Police: Principal threatened soccer dad

A Yonkers school principal is charged with allegedly threatening to beat a father with a baseball bat.

Police arrested the 45-year-old Robert Riccuiti, principal of the Vive School and also a Long Island soccer coach, on charges of aggravated harassment after he reportedly cursed out and threatened to hurt a soccer dad over email.

Officials say the victim had complained to Riccuiti about his 6-year-old son not getting enough playing time.

Riccuiti was scheduled to be arraigned on Long Island Saturday.
