Could be worse.

On 30 June 2013, da Silva was refereeing an amateur football match in Pio XII, Maranhão. He sent off player Josemir Santos Abreu, 31, who refused to leave the field and began a fight with the referee. Abreu threw a punch, which prompted da Silva to draw a knife from his pocket and repeatedly stab Abreu. Abreu died on the way to the hospital. When fans watching the game, including Abreu's friends and family, found out about his death, they invaded the pitch and stoned the referee, before decapitating him, quartering him, and putting his head on a stake in the pitch. Police chief Valter Costa was quoted as saying "one crime will never justify another".

Never knew about this and I've now seen very grainy stills of this. Fucking hell!
