Osceola County – On October 3, Osceola County Sheriff's deputies responded to Liberty High School located at 4250 Pleasant Hill Road in Kissimmee.
Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the victim who indicated he was on the field refereeing a sophomore league football game for the Central Florida Athletic Association.
A call was made that upset several parents and coaches and they began arguing about it on the field. One of the coaches, identified as Leo Davis, struck the referee in the face before leaving the area.
The referee sustained minor injuries. Several other witnesses corroborated the referee's story.
Deputies were able to locate Davis as he attempted to leave the school driving his vehicle at a high rate of speed. Deputies took Davis into custody and he told them he pushed the referee in an attempt to separate individuals who were fighting.
A witness had the incident recorded (see video below) and after deputies viewed the video, they determined it contradicted Davis' account of the incident.
Based on the witness statements and the evidence, Davis was arrested and charged with Battery on a Sports Official. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail with a $1,000 bond.
Leo Davis (DOB 2/23/79), 611 Buena Vista Street, Lakeland
In researching his prior arrests and problems with the law, he will more than likely pay a serious fine and/or do time. What a great role model for youth.
