Sports can get extremely passionate in the heat of the moment, and it isn’t uncommon for many matchups to end in physical violence due to the high volume of competitive nature already at hand.
A group of youth basketball league players in Lithonia, Georgia took their aggression a bit overboard recently after they ganged up on the referee at a church game in a now-viral attack that was all caught on camera.
The ref got jumped by several players in the game that occurred at Stronghold Christian Church this past Sunday. The guy doesn’t go down without putting up a good fight though, which is probably the reason why he was ganged up on in the first place. As the Dekalb County Police Department told TMZ Sports, an investigation into the incident is currently underway although no word has been released on the condition of the man attacked.
Here’s what Stronghold is saying about the incident at their church, via TMZ:
