This is not something you see everyday thank God! as Romanian Armed Special Forces halt a Romanian fourth tier tie to arrest a player.

According to Yahoo! Romania, the masked police were looking for a gang leader named Sorin Udrea, who has played for Chişoda this season. He is wanted for a number of crimes, including match fixing, and was recently in a bar brawl involving several large knives — one of which appeared to be protruding from a man captured on hospital security tapes.
