Strange Crime -- Detroit: Soccer Player Punches Ref Out Cold

A strange crime from the beloved, king city of weird: Detroit.

It seems a Detroit-area soccer player is facing a felony assault charge for allegedly punching a referee during an adult-league match, critically injuring him.

Baseel Abdul-Amir Saad unched the unnamed referee in the head after the referee indicated he planned to eject the 36-year-old Dearborn resident from a game Sunday at Mies Park, Livonia police Lt. Tom Goralski said.

The referee was in critical condition at a hospital, authorities said.

It seems the perpetrator, Saad, wasn't at the field when police arrived, Goralski said. The lieutenant said Saad surrendered Monday.
