A referee created a scary scene during a football match in Brazil at the weekend after he pulled out a gun to ward off an alleged attack.

The referee Gabriel Murta was said to be a police officer by day, and was officiating a regional league match in Brumadinho near Belo Horizonte, Brazil’s sixth largest city and the capital of the state of Minais Gerais when a melee ensued following one of his decisions that didn’t sit well with one of the teams.

Murta went to the changing rooms to fetch his gun and racing back onto the pitch, waving it around but was restrained by one of his linesmen from shooting.

The referee is facing disciplinary action and was due to undergo a psychological assessment on Tuesday, and could face suspension or a permanent ban.
