It’s been a fall full of player-on-referee violence – thankfully, so far, limited to the high school level. We’ve seen it in Texas and Tennessee, along with ugly player-on-player incidents in California and New Jersey. But here’s one we’d yet to see until this weekend – a referee punching a coach in the face.

That’s what happened at a game between East Mississippi Community College and Itawamba Community College on Saturday. Note East Mississippi leads 31-3 at the time.

These tweets fill in what goes unseen from the video. We’ll pick it up from the start:

Then some confusion arised whether the official threw a punch or a clipboard.

Turns out it was both.

This note sums it up.

Wait, no. This sums it up:

East Mississippi won the game, 48-24.
