Give him a whole bunch of community service, something that's actually useful, and ban him from coaching kid's sports in the future. But tossing him in jail is just overkill.
I think it's more like a "zero tolerance" policy and this jackass is being punished to try and deter other jackasses from doing similar things. I've got no problem with him spending time in jail if it sends a message to other parents.
