A youth football coach in Maryland faces several charges after he threatened a referee with a gun.
Police charged 31-year old Aaron McCown with first and second degree assault along with reckless endangering in connection with a football game.
According to officials McCown grew angry after a referee ended the football game early due to the coach's abusive language.
Witnesses say McCown ran to a truck where he grabbed a bag that had a .45-caliber handgun in it, and began making verbal threats to the referee.
