Referee in Brazil pulls out gun after receiving ‘rough treatment’ from players

According to Globo, the ref, who is a military police officer by trade, was slapped and kicked by players who wanted an opponent sent off.

His response was to run to the dressing room and return with a gun before being calmed down by his fellow officials and leaving the pitch.

The referee will now meet with a psychologist while punishment is being considered.
