Neymar will miss Brazil's next game after being sent off for an attempted headbutt during their 1-0 defeat to Colombia in the Copa America.
The Barca forward and Brazil captain received a provisional one match ban, which could be extended when it's reviewed by the South American Football Confederation later today.
Neymar lashed out during a tense match that was decided by a close-range effort from Colombian defender Jeison Murillo.
The Brazilians will now be without their captain for their final group game against Venezuela, and are set to lose him for any quarter-final game if the ban is extended.
This isn't the first controversial incident in the Copa America - Juventus and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal was held by police after crashing his Ferrari in Santiago.
He was later heard shouting "You can put me in cuffs, but you'll f*** Chile".
