Players vs. Police

[OFF THE POST] A Bolivian Libertadores Cup qualifying game between Aurora and Wilstermann featured a players vs. police brawl that ignited after a dozen officers took to the field to remove red-carded Aurora defender Eduardo Zenteno. His teammates' battle against the cops, summoned after Zenteno delayed his departure, included karate kicks and corner-flag swinging.

Aurora goalkeeper Silvio Dulcich used a corner flag as a weapon against the police, who responded with pepper spray.

The referee seemed about to call off the game, but resumed it - sans Dulcich -- after Wilsterman insisted it go on. Aurora held on for 1-0 win.
