SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Seneca Police Department was called to the scene of a disturbance on a soccer field Oct. 5.

Authorities said when they arrived on scene, multiple witnesses said a referee struck a parent in the face. Investigators said it appeared to be the result of an argument on the field.

When interviewed, police said both the parent and referee admitted there was a verbal dispute before the referee hit the parent twice in the face.

Neither party wished to press charges.

The recreation director said the referee would not be returning.
