Matias Messi reportedly fought with officers after they searched his Audi A5 during a routine stop close to the Messi family's native city of Rosario in Argentina.

Matias, who allegedly suffered a cut to his eyebrow, was taken to a police station, but released after four hours.

Two policemen were allegedly taken to hospital with foot and knee injuries, according to the Daily Mirror.

Matias has been charged with illegal possession of a firearm and it is yet to be seen what further punishment he will face.

It is not the first time Lionel Messi's brother is in the headlines for the wrong reasons – after a similar incident in October 2008, he was arrested for allegedly having a loaded gun attached to his belt.
