The Santa Barbara District Attorney's Office has filed a charge against recently dismissed UCSB men's soccer player Peter McGlynn.
District Attorney Joyce Dudley says McGlynn has been charged with a misdemeanor of battery against a sports official. The charge carries a maximum punishment of a $2,000 fine and one year in county jail.
McGlynn was kicked off the team on Monday after he pushed and knocked over referee Reed Christy following the Gauchos' 2-1 loss to UC Davis on Sunday. The Gauchos were upset about a play that led to the Aggies' game-winning goal in overtime.
McGlynn was arrested by campus police after the incident and later released.
The senior defender apologized this week to his teammates, fans and UCSB community with a statement on his Twitter account.
