Last summer, 35 year old, 6ft 5 in and 200 pounds Gary Johnson served as a referee in the match between his son and a 16 year old boy. The match occurred in his (Johnson's) backyard but his son lost the match.
The teen could be seen in the video below talking back at Gary Johnson and at one point bumped chests with him. Gary got mad at this disrespectful behavior and knocked the kid to the ground but it didn't end there. To make a long story short, Mr Johnson showed him who was boss. At the end of the video though, he shook the kid's hand.
Unfortunately for him however, someone who recorded the fight put it on YouTube. It went viral, people saw it, cops got involved and arrested Johnson.
In court, the kid testified that he challenged Gary and said he remembered falling to the ground and being hit by Johnson but blacked out after that. He further said "I had a split eyebrow, and my teeth were pushed back,'. 'The inside of my lip was tore, well my teeth were penetrated through my lip, and the front of my teeth still now are numbed".
Gary Johnson of Palm Bay, Florida fainted moments after his verdict was read in court Friday, finding him guilty of battery, child abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and disorderly conduct. He faces up to 57 years in prison though he's expected by prosecutors and his defense to see 10 years.
