Online Betting Shop: Spectators decapitate referee in Brazil

Online betting shop services were shocked to learn that in northern Brazil, an angry mob of football spectators decapitated a referee after he fatally stabbed one of the players when he refused to leave the pitch, according to officials.
A very angry mob of fans stormed the pitch during an amateur game in the state of Maranhao, and online betting shop services were taken aback when they found out that referee Otavio da Silva was stoned to death before he was decapitated.
Police sources said that the murder was revenge for Mr Silva after he fatally stabbed player Josenir dos Santos.
One man was arrested over the murder and online betting shop services learned that there are ongoing investigations.
The incident happened on June 30 in the town of Pio XII, but news of the event did not quickly emerge, perhaps due to the remote location.
The state’s Public Safety Department said that the problem started when Mr Santos and the referee got into a fist fight after the player was sent off, but he refused to leave the field, and many people with a betting site have trouble believing what followed.
Mr Silva then pulled out a knife and hurt Mr Santos, and online betting shop services found out that he died on the way to the hospital.
The department said in a statement that the player’s relatives and friends rushed onto the pitch, stoned the referee to death, and then dismembered his body.
The police have so far police arrested a 27-year-old man.
“We will identify and hold accountable all those involved,” police chief Valter Costa was quoted as saying by local media.

Yes, things can definitely heat up on the pitch, but this incident was taken too far, and hopefully a tragedy like this will not happen again in the sport.
