High School Basketball Player Loses His Cool, Attacks Referee (Video)

If you thought the NBA players were upset about the increase in technical foul calls, you haven’t seen nothing yet!

After being assessed a technical foul and ejected from the game for pushing a member of the opposing team, this player from Desoto County High School in Florida took his anger out on the referee, shoving him with two hands before wrapping him in a bear-hug and tossing him to the ground.  Luckily a few members of the coaching staff and a police officer were able to restrain the disgruntled player and usher him off the court before he could continue his assault on the official.

There are currently no details on the name of the player or whether charges were laid, but I wouldn’t expect to see him on the court anytime soon.
