Apologies if this has already been posted. [url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,38276,00.html[/url] Head of Anti-Violence Group Arrested for Hitting Referee Wednesday, November 07, 2001 Email this Article SARASOTA, Fla. — The head of an anti-violence group has been arrested for punching a referee during his 7-year-old son's flag football game. Treavor Harvey, who was coaching his son's team, charged on to the field after complaining to referee Tony Kormansek that the game was getting too rough. The 270-pound Harvey had to be pulled off the referee during the Saturday incident, police said. Harvey, 34, a mentor in Sarasota County schools and president of MAD DADS, a group that steers young people away from crime, was arrested on a battery charge. He was released from jail Saturday on $750 bail. He said Tuesday he regretted the incident. "That is not supposed to be the way that you channel your anger," Harvey said. "This is an extreme embarrassment for him," said Harvey's attorney, Derek Byrd. "He just lost control of his emotions." Harvey resigned from his coaching position, but plans to stay active in the community, Byrd said. Kormansek, a truck driver who lives in Bradenton, said he wasn't injured, but the punch made his ears ring. He said Harvey yelled at him several times during the game and was penalized twice for unsportsmanlike conduct. "He was going crazy," Kormansek said. "I didn't even get the time to spit out that he was ejected. He just came out swinging." Kormansek could have canceled the game, but decided not to because the winner was scheduled to play for the championship this weekend. Instead, he took a 20-minute break and penalized the Harvey's Little Apaches 20 yards. The team lost the game to the Little Comanches.

I am APPALLED by this exploitation of American Indian names, clearly meant to be derogatory to those who are STILL the rightful owners of this country, the exploitation of which justifies the attack we suffered on Sept. 11. How am I doing, Bill???? [rolleyes]

Nah. From time to time, I enjoy TRYING to think like a leftist. It makes me more appreciative of my sound, logical Conservative mind.

He'll just turn it into an argument for gun control. Something like "It's a good thing I don't believe in firearms or I might have shot that poor ref. If it could happen to me, it could happen to anybody." A lot of stupid people might just buy it.
