Mark Consuelos caused a scene at his 16-year-old son Joaquin's wrestling match over the weekend — and it was all caught on video and sent to TMZ.

The Riverdale star, who is married to Kelly Ripa, went into protective-dad mode after Joaquin's opponent ripped off his headgear. Consuelos, 48, stormed the mat and appeared to say something to the other boy. He was restrained and eventually pushed back by another adult. In the video, you can hear other parents tell Consuelos to calm down.

"What, are you crazy or what?" one guy yells. "Hey, be cool. It’s a f****** high school wrestling match."

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to a rep for Consuelos, but did not immediately receive a response.

Ripa was also in attendance and apparently stayed calm while Consuelos rushed to their son's defense. TMZ reports, "Joaquin's opponent won the match and Mark was vocally and visibly upset, leaving the gym for a few hours to cool off before eventually returning to the all-day tournament."

Joaquin is the youngest of Consuelos and Ripa's three children. They are also parents to son Michael, 22, and 18-year-old daughter Lola. The Live With Kelly and Ryan host often talks about her kids on her morning talk show. Earlier this year, she received backlash for joking that Michael is "chronically poor" living on his own in Brooklyn.

"I don’t think he ever really experienced, you know, extreme poverty like now," she quipped. "He's experiencing being an adult."

Ripa later addressed the incident saying, "People love to have fake outrage over something they didn't see."

It remains to be seen if she'll address the wrestling incident with her usual humor on Live.
