Crazed hockey fan launches can of beer at referee that drills him below the belt

During a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) game on Feb. 11, the brother of a player penalized for roughing went and roughed the referee who called the penalty — by tossing a can of beer at him from the stands.

It happened during the second period at the Centre of Excellence Sports Rousseau in Boisbriand, Quebec, when Alexandre Perron, the 29-year-old brother of Francis Perron of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, chucked a "nearly full" beer can at referee Dominic Bedard, according to Le Journal De Montreal. Check out the ugly scene in the video:


Referee Dominic Bedard took a beer can to the nuts a few nights ago after giving Francis Perron a penalty in the QMJHL. Perron's 29-year-old brother who was in the stands watching the game threw a beer at the ref and it hit him square in the nether regions. He was later arrested and could be charged with assault with a weapon. (H/T: RDS/Reddit/TVASports)

The can nailed Bedard exactly where it hurts. He was shaken and needed a break to let the pain run its course (you know the kind, fellas) but managed to return to the game.

Alexandre Perron was removed from the game, arrested, and faces possible assault and other criminal charges when he goes before a judge May 10.
