In soccer, some referees are pretty ballsy when they go to hand out a yellow or red card. They will get right up in the player’s face and hand out the card with an over-emphatic nature.
As you would expect, some players don’t like receiving the card, especially a red card since it means an ejection and a likely suspension from the next game. One Argentinian soccer player will likely receive more than just a one-game suspension for his reaction to a red card.
According to The Guardian, police in Argentina are looking for a soccer player who allegedly shot and killed referee Cesar Flores after he received a red card during a match on Monday.
“It all happened during the football match. We don’t know [exactly what took place], but it appears the player was angry, fetched a gun and killed him,” a police source told news outlets.
The website reported that FLores was shot three teams, in the head, neck, and chest. Another player, Walter Zarate, was also injured in the attack.
