LHSAA referees arrested

Posted:

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) is continuing to investigate an incident that led to the arrest of two officials during Friday night's football game between Mandeville High school and St. Paul's.

According to a LHSAA's Executive, Head Referee James Radcliffe and Line Judge Chris Gambino were released from the St. Tammany Parish Jail early Saturday after making bail.

They were charged with "Public Intimidation of an officer".  According to witnesses at the game, Radcliffe was asking a group of people on the sideline to move, but a Convington Police Officer said he should handle the situation. Radcliffe allegedly became confrontational with the officer and was later removed from the field, along with Gambino.

Police records show that this isn't Radcliffe's first run-in with the law. He was arrested in Orleans Parish for assault in a drive-by shooting in 2005.
