'Rudolf the Red Nose Referee' is at left.
Footballer Ömer Kuşçu reacted negatively to a red card given to him
in a match played in Trabzon's 2nd Amateur Playoff Group and bit
the nose of referee Furkan Aksuoğlu.
The match between Mulakaspor and Gölçayırspor was played at
Yavuz Selim Field. At the 33rd minute of the match referee Aksuoğlu
gave Mulakaspor player Kuşçu his second red card for committing a
foul. In the ensuing tumult, Kuşçu bit Aksuoğlu's nose, prompting the
referee to suspend the match and go to the referees' dressing room.
Aksuoğlu was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. He filed a
complaint against Kuşçu, who was taken to police headquarters,
where he gave a statement and was then released.
