KENDALL, FL (POP America) -- A 57-year-old soccer player could have to serve jail time after punching a referee in the jaw. Police say Amador Yenkenes was taking part in a soccer match for players 55 and over last weekend in Kendall when he became upset with one of the referee's calls. He then booted the soccer ball in anger, instantly got a red card and was ejected from the game. But it's the swipe Yenkenes took at the referee that could land him behind bars. Officials say under a little-known law passed in 2004, Yenkenes faces the unusual charge of battery on a sports official. That means the punch is a third-degree felony instead of a first-degree misdemeanor. If convicted on the felony charge, Yenkenes faces up to three years in prison. To add insult to injury, Yenkenes' team had to forfeit the match after the incident.
