Father, son accused of fighting with ref plead not guilty to charges
WAUKESHA — A father and son charged in connection with a fight that occurred following a UW-Waukesha, UW-Rock County basketball game pleaded not guilty on Monday, Feb. 19 to the charges against them.
Jamal Mosley, 41, and J’shon Mosley, 20, each face one count of misdemeanor battery and one count of disorderly conduct. The defendants served as the coach and manager of UW-Rock County men’s basketball team.
According to a criminal complaint, on Jan. 3, shortly before 8 p.m., police responded to UW-Waukesha, where they learned a coach from the opposing team had gotten into an altercation with and punched a referee in the face.
Police spoke with the victim and two other referees who saw the incident. The victim was found to have a black and blue eye and red abrasions on his face. He had his arm wrapped and said he’d suffered a laceration to his forearm as well.
Jamal Mosley resigned on Jan. 23, a university spokeswoman said. She also indicated the younger Mosley, originally described as a team manager, was neither a manager nor a student at the school.
Both Mosleys are due back in court on March 21.
