NBC NATIONAL NEWS — New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick was fined $50,000 today by the NFL.
The league issued the punishment after Belichick grabbed an official's arm following his team's loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
A frustrated Belichick could be seen running across the field and trying to stop a referee.
The incident followed a close call on a game winning field goal for the Ravens.
For his part, Belichick said yesterday he never meant to disrespect the official, rather he wanted to know if the play would be reviewed.
