Chicago club basketball team brawls with referee in Georgia

R.A.W. Athletics, a Chicago club basketball team, was in a brawl Sunday morning with a referee at a Gatorade Association event in Georgia. The video has gone viral.

Howard Martin, the coach of R.A.W. Athletics, tweeted and then deleted the following: “A ref actually walked up on one of our players and attacked him. Everyone tried to break it all up, then the ref’s father (who was working a game on a different court) ran over to our court and rushed our guys..everyone in the gym, the other team and the directors saw everything.”

Here’s another video of the event that was sent to the Sun-Times, it shows how the fight may have started.
