All hell broke loose tonight at the Neshaminy high school basketball game against Pennsbury, when a Neshaminy player was called for a charge. Neshaminy basketball coach Jerry Devine snapped. There are no words for what happened next. Take a look for yourself.

CoBL has obtained video footage from Tuesday’s night’s boys basketball game between Pennsbury and Neshaminy that appears to show Neshaminy head coach Jerry Devine head-butting a referee, causing him to fall over.
Multiple sources in attendance tell CoBL that the video shows action with under 30 seconds left in the game, when a Neshaminy player was called for a charge after going in for a layup that could have made it a 3-point game, at which point Devine lost his cool.
The video, which is a cell phone capture of recorded game footage, is only five seconds long, and has two men reacting to the play.
Those sources say that after the indicident, Devine was removed from the gymnasium. The 10th-year head coach, who is also a history and algebra teacher, according to the school’s website, is most well-known for coaching Villanova senior Ryan Arcidiacono during his four yours at the northeast Philadelphia suburban school.
