Brazilian manager protests expulsion by asking cop to handcuff him, resists when it happens

Like the players they oversee, football managers can also be prone to the dramatic arts. Walter Knario of Brazilian third division club Cambe was sent off for comments he made to the referee during his side's scoreless draw against PSTC, but the enraged manager refused to go. Instead, he dropped to his knees in front of a military police officer and held up his hands asking to be cuffed during the first half. When the officer obliged his request and pulled out his cuffs, Knario suddenly changed his mind and resisted the cop's attempt to shackle him.

Knario's own staff then stepped in and escorted him off before he got himself in any more trouble. The lesson here? Cops will call your bluff.
