Perth basketballer 'pulls out gun' at social game

A SOCIAL basketball player enraged by a referee's umpiring planned to confront the official with a handgun before being talked out of it by friends, police claim.
The drama involving the referee allegedly unfolded at Melville Recreation Centre about 7pm on Monday after the man argued with the referee and stormed out to the carpark.

It is then, police claim, that he got the gun and was walking back to the centre when he was stopped by friends near the entrance.

Police are unsure what the man’s friends said to him but he did not go back inside.

It is unclear if the man had been fouled out of the game or had left the court of his choice but it is understood that by the time he was allegedly making his way back to the recreation centre with the gun, the game had finished.
