Na wa oh!! Brazilian referee pulls out a gun during a football match

'Self defence': Gabriel Murta, a police officer by day, was reportedly assaulted by players and a manager from one of the amateur football teams during a match in in Brumadinho near Belo Horizonte

The shocking incident happened at the weekend during a regional league match in Brumadinho near Belo Horizonte, Brazil's sixth largest city and the capital of the state of Minais Gerais.

Amateur side Brumadinho was playing against Amantes da Bola - which literally translates as 'Lovers Of The Ball.'
League president Valdenir de Castro claimed Murta was kicked and slapped after Amantes da Bola subs and the manager invaded the pitch to demand a red card for a rival team player.

Referees' association boss Giuliano Bozzano said the official felt threatened and went to look for the weapon to defend himself.
He was due to undergo a psychological assessment later today and could face suspension or a permanent ban.
