In a regional fixture between Brumadinho and Amantes da Bola, crazy scenes saw Murta bring a pistol on to the field in anger.

The ref apparently stormed off the pitch after some heavy physical and verbal abuse from several players, and returned wielding a gun in his right hand.

According to the Daily Mirror, Murta is said to be a policeman by day, but he now faces disciplinary action for his decision to bring a gun on to the pitch.

The Brazilian Referees' Association boss, Giuliano Bozzano, released the following statement: "The Minas Gerais Football Federation has already summonsed the referee and a psychologist to a meeting.

"On the basis of that conversation and his account of events and the results of the psychological assessment, I'll decide what, if any, measures to take.

"What's happened is obviously not a common occurrence, and I don't want to rush into anything.
