Referee Attacked by Players, Choked by Coach During Wild Soccer Game in Brazil (Video)

Soccer might not be the most dangerous sport in the world, but being a soccer referee is quickly becoming one of the most treacherous occupations out there.

During an amateur soccer game in Brazil, a ref issued a pair of red cards after a minor scuffle erupted. Neither the players nor the coach agreed with the call, as they chased him around the field. He was able to escape the angered posse, but only briefly, as the coach snuck in to put a choke hold on him.

Check out the craziness below.
