A taste for officiating

[REF WATCH/VIDEO] A 28-year-old soccer player attacked a referee after being sent off last Thursday night in a Delaware adult league match. The ref had just dismissed Rannord Jones when the player grabbed the referee and bit him on the chin, causing deep lacerations.

Jones ran from the field when spectators called the police but turned himself in the next morning. Authorities plan to charge the man with felony assault, abuse of a sports official, terroristic threats, and harassment.
