Referees arrested during high school football game

A couple of Covington, Louisiana high school referees got a bit too mouthy with the cops during a game on Friday night, ending with their arrest on charges of police intimidation.

One of the line judges at the game asked a police officer to move a crowd back, then returned a few minutes later to loudly demand that the crowd wasn't back far enough, apparently coming "nose to nose" with the officer.

So, that ended pretty much how you'd expect it to end.
