A California man has died after being involved in a fight over a referee’s decision at an adult soccer game.

According to the Oxnard Police Department, Misael Sanchez, a 29-year old Port Hueneme resident, died 15-days after he was involved in a large soccer fight that included players from both teams and spectators. The fight occurred on Sunday, July 10, 2022, at approximately 11:00 A.M. on a soccer field at Oxnard High School.

Sanchez died in the early morning hours on Monday, July 25, 2022. An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.

According to Yahoo Sports, witnesses told police that the fight broke out when opposing teams disagreed with a referee’s decision.

Sanchez was assaulted by multiple assailants, according to the police report.

Police say they arrested a 46-year-old man the day of the fight, but didn’t note that any formal charges had been filed in Monday’s release. The investigation is ongoing, and police are seeking help from witnesses who may have recorded video of the fight.

Investigators are still searching for witnesses or anyone who might have video recorded all or part of the fight.
