The player did not comply with the expulsion card raised by the match referee, and after a heated discussion, the referee pointed his gun at the player and the fans who came to follow the match.
The pistol was not with the referee of the match during the discussion, but eyewitnesses stated that they saw the referee, after the quarrel, as he ran outside the stadium towards his car, and returned seconds later with a pistol in his hand.
While a police report revealed that the player who received the red card, saw the referee holding the pistol and pointing it at him and the other spectators and players near the stadium, and fired one shot, but no one was hurt, but it caused a state of panic.
The US police in Oklahoma arrested the match referee.
And "Newsweek" magazine said that the referee, Duffy, is facing charges of displaying and directly using a firearm, the first criminal offense he committed in his life.
