Players, who were participating in an AAU game, and a mob attacked a ref at an incident in DeKalb County, Georgia on Sunday, according to a video posted on Facebook. There are very few details to the video at this time.
What we do know is that after the game ended, several players from the blue team — along with what may have been the coaches or some parents — booked it to the ref. The male then tries to avoid the altercation.
He runs away before several people got within a short distance of him. As the video shows within the 20-second mark, several people were ready to throw hands with the ref.

A black male in a white shirt appeared to be the aggressor. He rushes towards the official and ducks when the ref tries to defend himself.
Then, several others try to attack the ref. At one point, a player appeared to be involved and hit the ref.
Seconds later, the mob attacks the ref off the screen. As the person, who was taking the video got up to get a better shot, the mob had the ref down on all fours and attacking him.
There were other people at the venue at the time of the attack. However, they refused to stop it.
