Dirty Tackle - World Soccer

From the fifth division in Argentina, during a match between Union San Guillermo and Atletico Tostado, we have a referee who sparks a brawl with an unpopular decision. It starts with a sumo chest bump and quickly devolves into punches and flying kicks as an entire team takes on the ref, who actually gets in a few good shots of his own.

Realizing he's outnumbered and getting knocked around like a pinball, the ref decides to book it for the exit, hoping his natural speed will carry him away from his attackers. Instead, one player gave chase and forced the ref to hop a tall fence in order to escape -- something every ref should be able to do.
