Watch as a Massachusetts hockey mom walked out onto the ice during a youth hockey game to yell at the refs. Seems she did not like the fact that the refs stood by and watched as the young players fought.

Gina O’Toole told Good Morning America why she did what she did.

“I’ve seen fights usually between one or two children and the refs usually step in immediately and break it up.  That didn’t happen,” she said.  “I just found myself opening the gate and walking onto the ice and saying, ‘Hey, you need to get control of this game.  What are you doing?’”

Was mom out of line? Is fighting just a part of hockey? Watch the clip then comment on the CBS 6 Facebook page.
