Brazilian referee Gabriel Murta is facing disciplinary action after he pulled a gun on players who disputed a decision he took during the game.

Players from lower-league side Amantes de Bola allegedly kicked and slapped Murta for not giving a player from Brumadinho, the opposing team, a red card. The referee ran to the dressing room to get his gun after the initial incident.

According to the Murta is a policeman by day. He was due to undergo a psychological assessment and could face suspension or a permanent ban.
