Crazy Video Ref, Coach's Dad Brawl at Middle School Basketball Game
Things at a Kentucky middle school basketball game got heated fast when a referee called a technical foul on a coach.
That coach decided to take his team off the floor, and video recorded by a spectator shows what happened next.
A parent ran down from the stands to confront the referee, leading quickly to an all-out brawl.
That man, as it turns out, was the father of the coach, as well as the Pike County Magistrate, officials say.
Video shows the referee kicking the magistrate, Bobby Varney, in the head as spectators looked on in horror.
His son, Bobby Jr., has now resigned from his coaching position, but will remain a teacher at the school.
The incident has left seven people – including two referees – banned from the school district’s athletic events until the end of June, according to FoxNews.com.
The fight comes just weeks after another video out of Pennsylvania showed a high school basketball coach head-butting a referee to the ground.
