Well, HS sports is serious business these days.And the band played on...until the bandleader got tased.
Video of a Jefferson County High School band director being arrested by Birmingham police shows a chaotic few minutes before and after he was hit with the stun gun.
Johnny Mims, who took over as Minor’s band director in 2018, is charged with disorderly conduct, harassment and resisting arrest.
Police contend Mims didn’t comply with their order for his band to stop playing so they could clear the stadium following the end of the game between Minor High and Jackson-Olin High Schools, which was played Thursday night in Birmingham.

Hikers Jordan Dean and Josh Van Dyke recount that they reached the summit of Half Dome at about 12:30 p.m. last Thursday. They'd checked the weather before even attempting the hike, but saw a fast-moving storm approaching once they were on the summit. Two of their friends started their descent, but as rain and sleet conditions worsened, Dean and Van Dyke decided to wait it out at the top and hope for conditions to improve.Two hikers were struck by lightning Thursday at the nearly 9,000-foot summit of Half Dome, and were confronted with the task of making it down after bouts with singed hair, charred clothing, and memory loss.sfist.com
