Four Brazilian policeman could be facing jail time after a shocking video hit the internet this week following Vila Nova’s 1-0 win over Atlético-GO.
According to reports, following the full-time whistle fans from the opposing teams began fighting and the police were needed to step in to break up the violence.
While that commotion was all going on four policeman were secretly filmed beating the living daylights out of one Vila Nova fan in a bathroom. The policeman repeatedly and aggressively thumped the supporter with batons, and nobody came to the victim’s defence despite other fans looking on from a door.
The press office for the Military Police of Goiás has since said that investigations have been opened in order to find out why the policemen acted in the way that they did.
We wait to see if the policemen will be charged for their actions.
