    Soccer referee punched by player in Utah dies

    SALT LAKE CITY (KABC) -- A Utah soccer referee who was allegedly punched in the head by a teenager has died.

    Ricardo Portillo, 46, of Salt Lake City, died after spending a week in a coma. Police say a 17-year-old player in a recreational soccer league punched Portillo after the man called a foul on him.

    According to accounts from a police report, Portillo's daughter and others, the teenager was playing goalie during a game at Eisenhower Junior High School in Taylorsville when Portillo issued him a yellow card for pushing an opposing forward trying to score.
