A soccer match between Iranduba and Sao Raimundo-AM took a turn for really ugly recently when one of the players involved seemingly lost his mind and attacked a referee.

According to Yahoo! Sports, in response to what he felt was a questionable yellow card, Iranduba’s Derlan snapped and wound up charging at the official who made the call. Even though he didn’t get the opportunity to land too many punches before the melee was broken up, police opted to arrest him on the spot anyway.

Check out the entire hectic scene in the video below.
