    KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida high school football coach is accused of hitting a referee after a disputed call, and he faces a battery charge.

    The Osceola County Sheriff's Office said Monday that 36-year-old Leo Davis was arrested over the weekend.

    Deputies say the referee was working a sophomore league game at Liberty High School in Kissimmee when he made a controversial call. Parents and coaches began arguing on the field, and officials say Davis hit the referee in the face before leaving the field.

    The referee suffered minor injuries.

    Davis told deputies he was trying to separate people fighting when he pushed the referee accidentally.

    Deputies say video disputes that account.

    Davis was being held on $1,000 bond at the Osceola County Jail. It wasn't clear whether he'd hired a lawyer to contact for comment.

    People take football wayyyy too serious. You'll throw away your career over a referee's decision.

    Since when do referees wear lime-green polo shirts?

    Fucking sucker punched the official then does what is like an end zone dance but says Ina statement he accidentally pushed him. With him lying on top of good video proof he should the maximum across the board on all charges; no plea deals, nothing.

    I'll never understand "sports" parents. When my cousin was around 5 - 7 years old, his dad took him home from his baseball game, sat him down and made him watch the video of him fooling around I'm the field chastising him the whole time. I was thinking the whole time, dude, he's a little kid, what the hell is wrong with you? I was around 15 at the time, so I couldn't say anything.

    I hate when parents have to live vicariously through their kids, no matter what it is.
