"Sportsnet.ca -- The Vancouver City Police Department and the Canadian Football League are conducting separate investigations following a highly-unusual incident in which an official was allegedly struck by a patron during Friday night's pre-season game between the B.C. Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders at B.C. Place.
During the third quarter of the game, which Saskatchewan won 24-15, a male patron entered the field near the Roughriders' bench and made contract from behind with side judge Steve Dolyniuk, touching off a wild melee."[url=http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/article.jsp?content=20070616_133921_4724]http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/ar ... 33921_4724[/url]
I am glad that no official, team personnel, or player was apparently seriously hurt here.
No word was given in the article re the health status of the official who was attacked, but no news is good news.
