It's not the knockout game, but it is a knockout over a game.

An Oregon father is in jail after allegedly knocking out a teenager after his son was elbowed during a pickup football game.

Investigators in Coos County, Ore., arrested Mark Andrew Colton, 34, on Saturday for second-degree assault stemming from an October incident involving his 10-year-old son, the Associated Press reported.

The boy had been playing football with a group of kids at the city park when he was elbowed in the face during a play.

The child went home and told his father, who then went to the field and demanded to know who had hit his son.

When a 13-year-old who had not struck Colton's child spoke up,the suspect allegedly struck him in the temple, knocking him unconscious, KATU-TV reported.

The kid was taken to a hospital and treated.

Colton was taken to the Coos County Jail and held on $25,000 bail, Breitbart.com reported.
