Wednesday, October 6th, 2021, during a Brazilian soccer match, an angry soccer player knocked down a referee and deliberately kicked him in the head while he was on the ground. William Ribeiro, midfielder for Sport Club Sao Paulo, was arrested and charged with attempted murder. According to the doctor, the referee presented a confused speech.  The referee’s cervical spine and head were injured. Since the referee was on the ground laying down, you are risking killing someone if you kick them in the head.
