During a soccer match between Al Arabi and Al Naser in the Kuwaiti Premier League, referee Saad Al Fadhli punched a player in the face.

 It happened after Al Fadhli awarded Al Arabi a penalty kick.  Al Naser players were upset and charged at Al Fadhli.  One player pushed him, then he fought back.  He punched one player then kicked another.  2 players received red cards.

Al Arabi converted on the penalty.  Then, on the restart another Al Naser player was tossed out of the game after kicking the ball directly at Al Fadhli.
