Bama fan Johnny Gilliam was arrested Friday night for punching a referee during a high school football game in northern Alabama between Arab and North Jackson. The Alabama media hasn’t been able to get its hands on a full police report probably because it’s Alabama and we’re talking about a whole new world down there where Arab, Alabama is located. We don’t know if Johnny (allegedly) punched the ref while his school was getting blown out or when it happened.
News outlets report that Jackson County authorities announced the arrest of 38-year-old Johnny Ladell Gilliam on Tuesday. He is charged with third-degree assault.
The sheriff’s office says Gilliam surrendered to authorities on Monday after being accused of hitting a referee during Friday night’s football game between North Jackson and Arab.
You hate to see Bama fan put it all on the line so close to the LSU game. Just out here risking it all. Risking not being home on the couch to watch the Tide at 2:30 in a battle for the College Football Playoff. I guess that’s just how dangerous Johnny’s willing to live out here in November.
