Absolutely Mental! A linesman beats the crap out of a pitch invader in Trinidad (San Fernando v Shiva Boys)

 Absolutely Mental! A linesman beats the crap out of a pitch invader in Trinidad (San Fernando v Shiva Boys)2012 maybe drawing to close, but this could be one of the craziest videos we’ve posted in the last twelve months.

On Tuesday night in Trinidad, the stereotypical laid-back Caribbean atmosphere was nowhere to be seen during the long-winded named Coca Cola Secondary Schools Football League South Zone InterCol final between Presentation College San Fernando and Shiva Boys Hindu College.

Presentation College San Fernando were leading 2-1 in the match, when a fan from the Shiva Boys section burst onto the pitch and began assaulting the the linesman after his team had a penalty appeal turned down. What happened next, however, was unbelievable.

Rather than simply allowing the fan to get away with his assault, the well-built lino, Mr. Kevin Charles, gave as good as he got by beating the crap out his bare-footed assailant.

Using his flag as a weapon, the linesman pounded the pitch invader with a series of punches to the head before security officials finally got involved and broke up the warring twosome.

The match was abandoned as a result of a mental scenes, and the incident has since become headline news in the country.
