[OFF THE POST] In a Brazilian lower division game between Genus and Moto Clube, Genus' Robson refused to leave the field after getting
red-carded for a bad tackle -- until riot police entered the field and pepper-sprayed him.
Robson committed the foul with his team trailing, 3-0, and along with four teammates confronted the referee until riot police intervened with shields, batons and the spray. The game was then abandoned.
Genus' coach, Robson and six of his teammates resigned afterward, and the Rondonia state vice governor, Joao Cahula, said promised an investigation to determine if the police overreacted, according to ESPN SoccerNet.
