This is rare to see… not just a player going after a ref to complain, but after the game, in the tunnel, pretty much ready to fight. This is new.
This video recently emerged but two weeks ago the Buffalo Bills lost a close game to the Miami Dolphins, but the drama came off the field.
Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes was seen having to be restrained from confronting an official as he accused him of calling him out of his name.
“I’ll catch you, trust me I’ll catch you, guaranteed,” said Hughes. “I’m going to knock his ass out when I see him. He called me a bitch.” (VIDEO BELOW)
The NFL has fined umpire Roy Ellison one game check ($9,300) for his part in an incident involving #Bills DE Jerry Hughes earlier this month, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. Ellison has been reinstated from administrative leave and will work the #Giants–#Titans game this week.

This is not the first time Roy Ellison has been in trouble with the league for altercations with players.
In 2013, Ellison was suspended one game without pay for calling Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams a “garbage-a**, disrespectful m*****f*****.”
Jerry Hughes Just sprinted past Bills locker room entrance to confront an official, screaming that the official called him “a bitch” on the field.
