Say what you will about hockey fights, but they’re part of the sport. Fighting refs, however, is not.
Apparently Canadian junior hockey player Olivier Marcotte didn’t get that memo, as he picked a fight with a ref after allegedly spitting in his face. All things considered, you can’t really blame the ref for fighting back. As if starting a brawl with a ref wasn’t embarrassing enough Marcotte got his ass beat.

Marcotte was arrested on the ice, but no charges will be filed. To add more insult to injury, his team lost 9-3.
