Soccer referee viciously attacks player

As a Russian league reserve game in Grozny drew to a close, linesman Musa Kadyrov sprinted onto the field and "launched a vicious assault on one of the players." Reuters:

"The ref blew the final whistle and I started walking to our bench, when suddenly someone came from behind, pushed me to the ground and began kicking and punching me," the 18-year-old Amkar player told reporters.

Alexei Spirin, a match observer from FIFA, the sport's international governing body, rated the official 0/10 and said that he is "writing a special report." We rarely cover sports at Boing Boing, but I will take this opportunity to suggest to Mr. Spirin that Mr. Kadryov be assigned in perpetuity to exclusively referee Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
