High School Basketball Player Attacks Ref

Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I am not always the most even tempered person, especially when I'm playing sports. When I was in high school there were times I would go off on the occassional ref and speak my mind (always in a polite manor). However, once I moved from the hardwood and the gridiron to rugby, I soon learned the rugby culture does not tolerate such exploits and as I've aged I have become calmer with my dealings with those in the position of power.

One guy who could use a lesson in staying calm is this young man who plays for an unknown high school. After obviously getting into an altercation with one of the players on the other team, he decides to argue with the ref who called the foul on him. While this is just silly (perhaps he was channelling his inner Dennis Rodman) he then proceeds to bump the ref. This is never a good idea, and is a sure fire way to find your way to the locker room early. However, just to get his full money's worth the young man in question then takes the ref down to the floor, and we soon see why the guy is playing basketball and not wrestling in the winter.

This is some unbelieveable footage right here.
