Video: Pennsylvania high school basketball coach head butts ref during game

LANGHOME Pa. (WCMH/NBC) — Video appears to show a Pennsylvania high school basketball coach assaulting a referee.

It happened Tuesday during a boys’ basketball game.

With less than 30 seconds on the clock, a player on one of the teams is called for charging.

The team’s coach got upset and has a technical called against him. At that point, the video captured by cityofbasketballlove.com appears to show him head-butting the referee.

The coach received a second technical and was ejected.

WCAU in Philadelphia reported the referee was not seriously hurt and he remained on the court.

The coach has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation.
