High School Basketball Player Attacks, Bodyslams Ref (Video)

You think the notoriously insane Ron Artest gets heated up when an NBA ref makes a call against him? Ron has nothing on the Desoto County, Fla. high school player who decided to attack a referee after being assessed a technical and ejected from the game. We’ve seen things like inadvertent head butts and even times when a player gets carried away and shoves a ref or umpire, but seeing a player deliberately attack a zebra is pretty rare. Check out this video of a high school basketball player attacking a ref, courtesy of The Big Lead:

That kid obviously has some serious mental problems, and he’s going to have some serious legal problems if he’s 18 or older.  That’s blatant assault and battery, no matter how you cut it.  Poor sportsmanship taken to a new level.

    Alright, now that kid should be suspended from high school athletics after that attack. Period.

    Look, maybe I went a little too far. But he had it coming

    Not that big of a deal, sure he threw him to the ground but assault and battery is a little much, he didn’t punch the guy and it certainly was nothing like the international basketball player who broke the refs face from one punch.

    Your an idiot no one deserves that. The kid clearly laid his hands on the other player and deserved a tech after he shoved the kid again in front of the ref. The kid deserves to be in jail.

    Look at the law. Tech it is assault and battery and I bet you wouldn’t have said this if the kid broke the refs arm or caused some kind of serious problem. You need help if you think any kind of violence is okay.
