Southeast Michigan Soccer Ref Dies After Being Assaulted by Player [VIDEO]
A referee for an adult soccer league in Livonia has died after being punched in the head by a disgruntled player.
John Bieniewicz ejected Baseel Abdul-Amir Saad from a game in Livonia’s Mies Park on Sunday. On Monday, Saad was arraigned on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm. That charge is likely to change now that Bieniewicz has died.
