Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Colorado Springs Police say a parent who punched a youth basketball game referee who made a call he didn't like faces a charge of third-degree assault.

Police say 48-year-old Steven Vaughn was upset over a call in a YMCA league basketball game yesterday at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High School. Police say Vaughn went on the floor and punched 42-year-old referee Alvin Miller in the face several times before he was told to leave.

Vaughn was arrested after a shouting match in the parking lot.

Officers say miller didn't need medical treatment.

A phone number for Vaughn rang unanswered today.
