Kansas Police Arrested for Hitting Teenage Referee

A police captain in Wichita, Kansas got angered at a female teenage referee and ran on the game court deciding to take matters into his own hands.

[And it was all caught on video, as seen here.](https://www.facebook.com/PhotographyisNotaCrime/videos/1719048594784885/ “And it was all caught on video, as seen here.”)

Now the Wichita police captain has been arrested for battery and disorderly conduct.

[KWCH 12 reports](http://www.kwch.com/content/news/Wichita-police-captain-charged-with-battery-disorderly-conduct-470529683.html “KWCH 12 reports”) that the incident occurred on January 13 at a youth league basketball game in which Captain Kevin Mears shoved a 17-year-old girl refereeing the game.

Mears didn’t agree with a call and ran on to the court to grab his son off the court, but the teenage referee blew the whistle to alert Mears to leave the court. Angered at the teen referee for doing her job, Mears decided to push the young girl.

The teenage ref then ordered Mears off the court yelling, “Get out, get out!” Mears yells back shouting, “Get out of my way.”

It appears Mears can dish out orders, but can’t take them.

In a statement, Augusta City Prosecutor Benjamin Winters said:

> “The case was investigated by the Augusta Department of Public Safety. The investigation included numerous witness statements as well as video evidence. I would stress that at this point these charges are merely allegations, and Mr. Mears is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty”

The Wichita police Department released this statement:

> “In accordance with a new directive Mears remains on unpaid leave pending the outcome of criminal proceedings and an internal review. According to policy we will review the incident to determine if department policies were violated, after the completion of the criminal proceedings.”

Mears is the head of the Wichita Police Department’s East Patrol bureau. Mears is now on unpaid leave.  He faces a first court appearance on both charges at 1 p.m. Feb. 13.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
