Charges Against Louisiana Football Officials Dropped

Charges of public intimidation against two high school football officials were dropped six days after the pair was arrested during a game following a confrontation with an off-duty police officer working game security.

Referee Jim Radcliffe and linesman Chris Gambino were arrested Oct. 11 following an incident in the third quarter of a playoff game between St. Paul’s and Mandeville high schools.

Six days later, Covington Mayor Mike Cooper held a news conference in which he apologized to the officials and announced he had requested the charges be dropped. District Attorney Walter Reed agreed to do so.
