Florida HS basketball player could face charges for assaulting a ref
Florida HS basketball player throws referee to floor - KUSA & HighSchoolSports.net
DESOTO, Fla. - A high school basketball player could face criminal charges after throwing a referee to the ground.
The incident occurred during a game between Florida's Port Charlotte and DeSoto high schools.
In video posted on YouTube it appears DeSoto player Mason Holland got mad after a call.
Things escalated and the referee ejected him from the game.
That's when Holland charged the referee, slamming him to the court.
"It reflects in a negative way - on the school, the school district, the country and that's why we take it extremely seriously," Cline said.
School board officials say Holland has been suspended from school and he could face criminal charges."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Umm. We have that covered here:
Code of Alabama - Title 13A: Criminal Code - Section 13A-11-144 - Harassment, etc., of sports official - Alabama Attorney Resources - Alabama Laws
Harassing, menacing, or assaulting a sports official is like doing the same to a LEO or teacher. It ups the charge ie harassment is usually a Class C misdemeanor. Harassing an official or teacher ups it to a Class B so on and so forth. The school system should ban him from any further athletics in my opinion.
