Hockey fan hits referee in groin with beer can from six rows back
But you really shouldn’t be throwing full cans of beer at referees.

YOU REALLY SHOULDN’T throw missiles at referees, even if you disagree with the decision they’ve just taken.

However, to hit an official in the groin with a full beer can from six rows back shows an impressive aim.

The missile thrower in this case turned out to be Alexandre Perron — according to Le Journal de Montréal – who flung the can out of frustration at a penalty call the official had just made on his brother Francis during a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game.

Le Journal also report that a man was arrested over the incident and, despite his injury, the referee was able to finish the game.
