Video: 12 players sent off after mass brawl during a game in the Argentinian League

In a local derby game in the Argentinian third tier between Deportivo Roca and Cipolletti, it's safe to say things got a little out of hand…

The situation seems to be under control at the beginning of the video, tempers are running high but the referee initially has a hold on the game.

Suddenly it all kicks off with players running everywhere launching acrobatic kicks at one another, although there is a noticeable lack of punches thrown.

The whole situation quickly descends into chaos and the referee sends off 12 players, abandoning the game on 67 minutes before fleeing to the dressing room in terror.

At the end, the players scramble off the pitch as objects and missiles are thrown at them from rival fans.  We thought the amount of belts and scalps that were thrown from behind in the video was incredible, just look at the flying karate kick at 1:05.
