The referee of a youth hockey game was arrested after physically escorting a player off the ice, causing parents to go after him and those in the stands calling 911.  Other players on the ice said a player was asked to leave and became angry, reportedly taking a shot at the ref with the puck.

Police said the ref then physically escorted the player off the ice, upsetting parents who then tried to climb onto the ice to get to him.

No word on whether the player was dragged or pushed off the ice by the ref but Cromwell police did say the incident went beyond the typical escort off the ice.
