    This kid should be kicked off the team and forbidden from participating in any interscholastic sports, and maybe have criminal charges brought up on him. This is just stupid. Don't like the call so I'll beat up the ref:

    And the countdown begins for the race baiters come out and say that the ref's call was race related and the kid who hit him isn't at fault.

    He'll never play sports in any college and most likely at the high school level either. In TN. players must go through a clearing house to be eligible to play. The high school should ban him permanently and the ref should bring criminal charges.

    from the video - comments:
    The game ended in forfeit after the player from Desoto High School in Arcadia, FL attacked the referee after being issued a technical foul and was ejected from the game. The player has been banned from all extracurricular school activites according to the coach, suspended till January 10th as of now, and a police report has been filed. However, the official involved chose not to press charges at this time.

    Please do not let the actions of one teenager generalize the future potential actions of other individuals. This individual obviously made a bad decision. However, there has not been any other on the court incidents by other team members that we have knowledge of, and this player just transferred into the school this season. Therefore please do not unfairly associate his actions with the other players on the team. We posted the video because it is newsworthy but not with the intentions of it branding a team, coaches, school, country or area in the same light. We feel that the school, coaches, and anyone involved handled this very well, as it could have escalated even further but did not.
    FROM ESPN -
    A Florida high school basketball player has been suspended from school and won't be allowed to play again after slamming a referee to the court during a game.

    Mason Holland, a senior at DeSoto County High School in Arcadia, Fla., pushed an opposing player from Port Charlotte High as they ran up the floor in a game on Monday night.

    When he was called for a technical foul, Holland confronted the referee, pushed him, then grabbed him and tossed him to the floor.

    The game was stopped, as Holland was immediately escorted off the court. Port Charlotte was awarded a win by forfeit.

    Holland was suspended from school on Tuesday, USA Today reported.

    "It was totally unacceptable behavior," DeSoto County coach Joe Sheridan said, according to USA Today. "It was everything we are not, and now we have to recover from that with 12 very, very good boys.

    "He'll never play here again," Sheridan said, according to the report. "I've been coaching for 40 years, and I've never experienced anything like that. I'm still in shock."

    DESOTO, FL (NBC) - 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.

    "This is very disappointing. It's unacceptable," DeSoto school superintendent Adrian Cline said. "I've been a superintendent for a number of years, and a principal for years before that, and this is the first time I've been confronted with a student attacking an official."

    In a video posted on YouTube, DeSoto player, Mason Holland, is seen reacting heatedly following a call made by the referee.

    As the situation escalated, the referee quickly ejected Holland from the game. That's when he 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 could face criminal charges.

    The Florida High School Athletic Association said it plans on administering its own punishment. The FHSAA is still investigating the situation and could not comment on any possible punishments.

    The state attorney's office has become involved, and school officials will find out in the coming days if Holland faces criminal charges.

    Cline said the school district will review its policies to see what changes need to be made to prevent this from happening again.

    in most states it's up to the 'victim' to press charges. He doesn't press charges . . . kid gets away with it.

    He should face charges.


    I never understood why Latrell Sprewell wasn't permanently banned from the NBA after he choked his coach. That kind of crap shouldn't be tolerated in professional sports or high school/college athletics, except in hockey and in whatever they are calling the World Wrestling Federation these days.

    Got it. In many states, a law officer witnesses a crime, he can/does press charges for the victim. Most high school games have local law enforcement at the game. I'm surprised this future convict isn't in handcuffs. This goes way beyond a spirited contestant having a physical altercation in the midst of a game, this is criminal behavior and the man child performed a violent assault in front of hundreds of witnesses. He should be in jail.
