AN ARGENTINIAN footballer has been arrested after sending a female referee who had just red-carded him to hospital with a vicious right-hook.
Cristian Tirone was filmed running towards Dalma Cortadi and felling her with a punch to her head as she wrote his name down in her notepad.
Footage of the horror assault showed he failed to connect fully despite his obvious intention to do Dalma damage, missing the back of her head by inches and catching her in the neck and on the chin with his clenched fist.
The shocked referee got to her feet moments later as a male linesman pushed Tirone away before police rushed onto the pitch to arrest him following a struggle.
She was taken to hospital after the match was suspended but released following a check-up.
The vile attack took place yesterday during a third division match in the city of Tres Arroyos in the province of Buenos Aires.
Cortadi, 30, had red-carded two players after blowing a foul including Tirone. The 34-year-old, who plays for a team called Deportivo Garmense, received his marching orders for insulting her seconds before he assaulted her.
