Neshaminy High School basketball coach Jerry Devine appeared to head-butt a referee in this video posted to YouTube. The incident occurred during a game with Pennsbury High School on Jan. 5, 2016.

This, from City of Basketball Love’s Josh Verlin, is a local story that was already all over Twitter when we stumbled across it.

According to Verlin, the video below is from a Suburban One League basketball game between Neshaminy High School (Langhorne) and Pennsbury High School (Fairless Hills). Here is what Verlin wrote:

CoBL has obtained video footage from Tuesday's night's boys basketball game between Pennsbury and Neshaminy that appears to show Neshaminy head coach Jerry Devine head-butting a referee, causing him to fall over.

Multiple sources in attendance tell CoBL that the video shows action with under 30 seconds left in the game, when a Neshaminy player was called for a charge after going in for a layup that could have made it a 3-point game, at which point Devine lost his cool.

The story cites three sources that say Jerry Devine was removed from the gym after the incident.
