That's the crazy scene that unfolded when this pistol-packing ref in one of Brazil's lower league matches pulled out the firearm after things got a little tense on the pitch over the weekend.
Referee Gabriel Murta was furious after getting some rough treatment from one of the teams, but his reaction might have been just a tad excessive — even for those rowdy Brazilian leagues.
Murta, said to be a policeman at his day job, was allegedly kicked and slapped by players from Amantes de Bola, while the team's manager reportedly stormed the pitch demanding a red card.
The furious Murta reacted by racing to the locker rooms and returning with the weapon.
Murta will now undergo a psychologist test before the Minais Gerais Football Federation decided on a punishment.
