So, as a few of you on the maryland area(and somehow Mike himself) may have seen a referee at my local paintball field was assaulted while working

 

 

here is the post from the fields facebook

 

 

 

***PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Yesterday, we had one of our refs assaulted by a group of 22 walk-ons (they all knew each other). The ref was telling one of the players to leave the field because he shot at another player who wasn't wearing a mask several times BEFORE the game had even started. The player refused to leave, then proceeded to open fire on the ref, who did not have his mask on at the time. The rest of the group then joined in, firing at the ref a substantial number of times. The other refs went out to field to assist in removing them from the premises. We had the county sherifs come out to the field, but the group left before they showed up. The ref is okay, so no worries there.

For all field owners and staff in the DMV area, please contact us for further details on the people involved. Let's spread the word, so we can prevent incidences like this from happening again.

and just to help clear anything up , some popular questions so far

Q: did the players have thier own equipment, was it Chrono'd properly?
A; it was all rental equipment. check afterwards proved the guns were around 260

 

Q: Did the group fill out waivers?
A: yes, the entire group has had thier waivers collected and i beleive(not 100% sure) the names and addresses were handed to police

Q: "frozen" paint?
A: no, just no, its field paint only

 

 

this is definitely something that has hit close to home for me. i used to ref at this field full time for over a year. we used to deal will angry unruly "customers" all the time. but never quite to this extent

That's terrible! At my field we don't tend to have any incidents (just one so far) and nothing to that extent. If they all signed waivers, the field should be able to take their information and file charges if they choose. This is by far the most violent incident I have seen paintball related. Did the ref get hit in the face? Because that would be even worse than the brutality already showcased. It makes me mad that people considering trying paintball might hear about this and decide not to go, just because a group of idiots decided to follow every stereotype that the public believes about paintball players.

Thats fucking crazy, I would contact every other field in the state and warn them to ban these people along with taking whatever legal action the ref and field can.

How absolutely brain dead do you have to be to shoot at anyone let alone a REF that doesnt have their mask on?!

IDK about at a field but that could be a serious assault charge (2nd degree IIRC?) if it happened in public. People have been charged just for threatening someone with a paintball marker/pellet gun/etc. (it is technically a weapon if used in a crime in some areas).

Plus, judging by the severity of the marks, it looks like it was done at extremely close range. Good thing he had a thick jersey on or he could have a back marred with bleeding sores.

Players shooting at you during a game is an occupational hazard. It happens and most refs accept this too a reasonable extent. Incidents like the one above are rare, thankfully so. Still, when they do happen, the ones responsible should be prosecuted. Plain and simple.

Getting hit with paint at 260 feels worst than 280, I think its because they tend to bounce rather than break at least on me, and I think the rocks in my boots are more brittle than field paint lol.   I hope they get what they deserve.

Yeah theres an indoor place near here where the limit is 250 and those things hurt worse than the paint at any field Ive played at where its 290/300 for the limit.

That's completely unacceptable, I assume these players are banned from the field along with severe anal expansion?

I dont even remember the last time I got a bounce on someone. SUPER RARE. 

Stuff flies so straight and goes pew pew pew and breaks like it's made of soap bubbles.

You dont have to trust me, just think about it. Theres an angry, drunk mob of grown men with paintball markers/blunt objects. Would you want to retaliate and further incite them? What would you use to defend yourself? Would you be liable to criminal or civil charges or termination from your job if you did drfend yourself? Are there other alternatives?
