Disgruntled soccer fan rams ref with scooter [video]

August 24, 2011 |  1:05 pm


A soccer referee escaped unscathed after an angry fan rushed the field and struck him -- with a mobility scooter.

The incident occurred after Oss' loss to Almere City in the Dutch league match Friday night, reports FanHouse UK.

Referee Edwin van der Graaf was walking into the tunnel after the match when the fan, riding the scooter, clipped the ref a couple of times before van der Graaf stepped out of reach.

No word on whether the unidentified fan will face any charges. On the video he appears to just scoot away after the run-in.
