Youth Hockey Referee Arrested

WTIC’S Steve Saunders reports: Cromwell, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Cromwell police arrested a youth hockey referee Saturday over a physical disturbance with a player.

Stephen Levin, 55, of Rocky Hill was placed under arrest after authorities say parents and players “took offense” to the way he physically escorted a youth hockey player off the ice.

The incident took place around 4pm toward the end of a hockey game at the Champions Ice Rink. The referee called a match penalty on a player, and as the player made his way to his team’s bench, the referee approached the player and escorted him off the ice.

When parents tried to get onto the ice and approach the referee, other game attendees called police reporting that the situation was getting out of hand. Levin was arrested for breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.
