Clearly Unstable Soccer Referee Pulls Gun During Match
No hands in soccer? How about no handguns? Check out this shocking footage of a referee in Brazil whipping out a gun during a confrontation with a player.
Referee Gabriel Murta ran to the locker room, got the weapon and then scampered back to the field where another ref held him back. You can clearly see the gun in Murta’s hand. Murta, incidentally, is reportedly a police officer. The incident took place during a lower level match between Brumadinho and Amantes da Bola.
Murta explained his actions by saying players for Amantes da Bola ran onto the pitch to demand he issue a red card to an opposing player. He’s expected to receive a psychological evaluation this week and could receive a suspension or be removed from refereeing altogether.
