A Salt Lake City man who was punched in the head during a soccer game last week died Saturday from bleeding in his brain. Ricardo Portillo, 46, was refereeing a soccer game at Eisenhower Junior High School on April 27th when he dealt a penalty card to a 17-year-old player. The player, unhappy with the penalty, then punched Portillo in the head. At first, Portillo’s injuries appeared minor but swelling eventually led to a coma. The 17-year-old is currently being held in a juvenile detention center, and he is expected to be formally charged next week.
