An AAU coach was arrested over the weekend in Kentucky after an argument with a referee turned violent. Kenyon Menifield of Flint, Michigan punched a referee and knocked him unconscious. He then fled the scene before police arrived.
During the disagreement the referee turned to walk away. As he did, Menifield punched the referee, knocking him unconscious, causing minor injuries. Menifield then fled the area prior to Deputies arrival. Menifield was quickly located at a local hotel and taken into custody.
We’ve all heard of parents taking these games a little too seriously. That “passion” apparently doesn’t stop there.
It’s safe to say Mr. Menifield has coached his last AAU game. Sports organizations tend to frown upon passion that turns into physical violence towards officials.
