A Lexington police officer who reportedly grabbed a teenage soccer ref and threatened him pleaded guilty in court Thursday.
As a part of the plea, Keith Spears is not allowed to be around 13-year-old Nathaniel Rase or go to any games the teen may be refereeing.
He must also pay $400 in court fees and contribute $750 to the Kentucky Referee's Association.
During his court appearance, Spears apologized to the boy and his family for what happened.
Spears' future with the Lexington Police Department remains unclear.
