How to deal with players that are also referees?

How to deal with players that are also referees and when they play act as they were officiating from inside of the track?

A few weeks ago, a player that was also a referee in the same tournament, was playing and during the game in a lot of occasions he was doing hand signals or pointing to others players when he believe they where committing penalties. In some occasions he was right, in other I don't see the penalty or agree with their opinion.

What I did was warn to the player that I was only making calls for what I could see and if it was the same that he was continuously pointing with their hand signals from inside the track, that would lead to understand for opositive players and spectators, that I was following their directives,  undermining my authority in the game, and because that being unrespectfull with the referees.
After that, a few jams later the game ends.

My question is how to deal with this kind of situations? was my warning proper? or I should just ignore this kind of players? and if not, and if after the warning the player continues with their behavior should I issue a misconduct?

I recently heard of a recent similar, though much less extreme, situation.  In that situation, the skater was issued an Insubordination penalty.  I do not know that that was necessarily warranted in that situation.  But,  It sounds like it might be in yours.

I would, however, try to head that off before it gets to that point.  After about the second occurrence, I would talk about it within the crew and let HR talk to the skater and/or their captain to explain that that is not acceptable behavior for the reasons you stated and warn that future occurrences could be penalized.

That will probably resolve situation.  If the warning does not do the trick, the first penalty should help the player understand that they should segregate their behaviors based on what shirt they are wearing.
