SAO PAULO - One man has been arrested in northern Brazil after a referee who fatally stabbed an amateur player over his refusal to leave the field was decapitated by a mob, police said on Saturday.

Referee Octavio da Silva, 20, stabbed player Josenir dos Santos, 30, on June 30 after dos Santos refused to heed his order to leave, police spokesman Kena Souza told Reuters.

A mob then turned on da Silva, killing him before severing his head in the remote town of Pio XII, named after a former pope. A 27-year-old man was arrested on July 2 and police in the regional headquarters of Santa Ines will continue to investigate the incident, Souza said.

Some guy was telling me about this in a bar on Sunday. I was in complete disbelief. He said they quartered the dude first.

apparently they cornered the ref and waited...not starting the dismemberment until they got word from the hospital that the player had died.

this plus the rec league ref that was killed in utah, just makes you go....geezus.
