Emerson Leao, coach of Brazilian club Goias, got into a scuffle with a reporter after a 2-2 draw against opposing team Vitoria on Wednesday. After Leao was pushed away from the brawl, three of his players went after the reporter, one of whom got a few punches in.

The renowned coach immediately approached the referee after the final whistle to argue Vitoria's game-tying goal in the 89th minute. Several radio reporters tried to listen in on the conversation and that is when the fight began.

Leao had to be quickly restrained, but his players joined in and one pushed a reporter to the ground.

According to FourFourTwo.com, Leao and Goias striker Rafael Moura were brought to a police station for questioning. Scroll down to see the sequence of events.
