Andrew Keigans officiated a little league football game over the weekend, and following a disputed call which he made, he was viciously assaulted by an assistant coach. The incident occurred Saturday evening during a game between the West Park Saints and Miramar Patriots in West Park, FL. According to US News, Keigans gave the Saints a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct after one of the assistant coaches made a derogatory comment from the sidelines.
After he threw the flag, Keigans turned around an bumped one of the players and moved the player to the side to talk to one of the other referees, the report said.
The assistant coach, who disagreed with the penalty, barged the field and confronted Keigans as he was held back by head coach Antonio Lane, the report said.
Because the assistant coach left the sidelines and entered the field of play to confront Keigans, the head referee decided to end the game, the report said.
From that point on, chaos ensued. You can clearly see from the below video how the assistant coach slaps Keigans out of nowhere. The slap was a pretty vicious one which was hard enough to send Keigans to the ground. The assistant coach was identified as 43-year old Dion Robinson, who has not been arrested yet, but could face an assault charge very shortly.
