Sacramento father who tackled ref ordered to undergo anger management

A Sacramento man who tackled a referee at a Roseville youth soccer match last year will have to undergo anger management counseling. Vicente Robles was shown on video attacking the referee at his son’s game on Oct. 30. A judge on Monday ruled that Robles will have to serve 30 days in jail that can be served on alternative sentencing, meaning he will go to probation and find alternatives to jail that range from community services to home detention. In addition, Robles is banned from attending youth sporting events during his probation and he may have to pay for the referee’s lost wages. Robles had pleaded no contest after being charged in the case. “This case serves as a reminder of the importance of common decency, particularly at youth sporting events,” the Placer County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.
