    There wasn't enough information in the story for me to have an opinion. What did they do to intimidate?

    Sounded like they tried to move the crowd back off the sidelines and the police stuck their nose in it. When the ref(s) told the police they were in charge the "measuring contest" began. The police won.

    I've been snooping around local new orleans forums and from what I can gather the chain gang had problems with fans being in the way. They asked the line ref to ask the cops to move the fans back. Local police were chatting it up with the fans and didn't provide anything meaningful to the line ref. Line ref goes to head ref and head ref goes to the sideline to ask the police to move the fans back or the game does not resume. Police officer threatens the ref with an arrest of public intimidation and head ref just walks away daring him. So police arrest the head ref and line ref.

    I did not know we could have refs arrested. I would have been all over that for years.

    It's all about the dotted line the school's supposed to paint 12 feet from the playing boundary.

    If there's no painted dotted line, there's nothing to enforce.

    There were several WAC refs that should have been arrested over the past 20 years or so, in football and basketball (and of course "dirtbag umpire" in baseball).

    I was actually thinking maybe the WAC refs got promotions. Too bad they squandered prosperity by getting arrested.

    Word is St. Paul's will have a hard time finding refs for home games. But this is speculation.

    The more that surfaces about this situation, the more interesting it gets. The arresting officer, a Covington police officer, turned out to be the father of a Mandeville player who was allowing the fathers and family members of other Mandeville players access to sideline. At this point, you will likely see St. Tammany Parish Sheriff deputies staffing those sidelines in the future - at both St. Paul's and Covington High games.
