'Please tell me last night didn't really happen...'
- by Scott Roussel 10 months ago
Sometimes you wake up and think, "Did I really do that last night? Please tell me I didn't really do that last night.?. Right?"
Along those lines, I present 2 referees getting arrested while calling a game in Louisiana and separately I present PJ Fleck.
According to the guys at WWL who were at the game:
Covington Police Captain Jack West told Deke Bellavia what officers say happened in the incident:
"Well, a referee asked a police officer to move some people back. The police officer moved them back. Another referee came up to the police officer and told him, 'that's not far enough.' The police officer explained....would you please handle the game, referee the game, and we will handle the crowd for you. The second referee told the police officer, nose-to-nose with the police officer, 'you're out of the game...get outta here.' And the police officer said, 'excuse me sir, just referee the game, and we'll handle the crowd.' And he says 'no, get out. Get out now.'
West went on to say, "There's several witnesses that stepped forward who stepped forward to say that's what happened. So, the two referees have been arrested for public intimidation."
The game was delayed about 20 minutes during the incident.
Please tell me last night didn't really happen...
