LONDON (AP) - A soccer player in England’s fourth tier has been charged with pushing a ball boy to the ground while attempting to retrieve the ball during a game.

The English Football Association said Liam Kelly, who plays for Leyton Orient, committed an act of violent conduct in the incident during a match at Plymouth on Tuesday, when Orient lost 3-2.

The incident wasn’t seen by match officials - so Kelly wasn’t sanctioned for the alleged push - but was caught on video.

Kelly has until Friday to respond to the charge.
