There are plenty of sports fan who would love to attack an umpire or an official but most wouldn’t go through with it if presented the opportunity. However, one Ukrainian soccer fan attending the Chernomorets/FC Metalist match this week decided to attack a linesman and nearly strangled him to death.
As the referees gathered together to discuss a call on the pitch, a Chernomorets fan leapt out of the stands and grabbed an official with both hands around his neck. After a few seconds, the fan was chased down by riot police along with Chernomorets striker Santana.
Even though the fan was subdued by police that didn’t stop him from trying to escape numerous times before being escorted of the field.
All in all, it took nearly seven police officers to subdue the crazed fan.
