MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan high school basketball referee who pushed a coach has been suspended for the rest of the season.
The incident occurred Friday night at a game between Zeeland East and Muskegon.
Video showed William Ripple putting his hands on the chest of Muskegon coach Keith Guy and pushing him away during a tense exchange late in the game.
The Michigan High School Athletic Association says it doesn't condone intentional physical contact between an official and a coach.
The incident is under investigation.
