An important matchup in the California junior college ranks Saturday night took a violent turn, as an offensive lineman knocked out an official after being separated from a player on the opposing team.

During the game between Mt. San Antonio College and Ventura College, Mt. SAC lineman Bernard Schirmer was sent back to his team’s huddle by an official after getting into a confrontation with a Ventura College player. Despite the efforts of the official and some of his teammates Schirmer did not calm down, eventually punching the official and knocking him out cold.

Per the Ventura County Star, Schirmer, a 6-foot-5 freshman from Long Beach, California, was arrested on suspicion of battery on a game official following the game.

Ventura College would go on to win the game 35-29, knocking off the team ranked first in the national poll entering the weekend.
