Newcastle boss Joe Kinnear is now facing two Football Association charges after being sent to the stands at the weekend.
The 61-year-old was charged with using abusive and insulting words towards a match official during Saturday's 2-2 Barclays Premier League draw with Stoke, and is yet to respond to an improper conduct charge after branding Martin Atkinson a "Mickey Mouse referee" following his side's 2-1 defeat at Fulham on November 9.
"Newcastle United manager Joe Kinnear has been charged with using abusive and insulting words towards a match official," an FA spokesman said. "Kinnear was sent to the stands during Newcastle's match against Stoke City on 6 December after contesting the award of a free-kick. He has until December 23 to respond to the charge."
Kinnear was ordered from the bench by referee Mike Riley after he contested the free-kick from which Stoke scored their injury-time equaliser.
French defender Sebastien Bassong was penalised for a foul on Ricardo Fuller, and former Magpie Abdoulaye Faye made the most of Glenn Whelan's free-kick to stab home a match-saving goal.
Kinnear did not conduct the post-match press conference, and it was left to coach Chris Hughton to explain what had gone on.
"I think it was for perceived comments, but from where I was, I certainly didn't hear anything. That's what I think it was for," he said. "One thing I can tell you is that it's a very, very emotional game, certainly at that stage of the game."
"The linesman had given a decision some four minutes before that, which having seen it again, is exactly the same as our thoughts were at the time, that it wasn't a free-kick.
"It was an old-fashioned shoulder charge, both players competing for the ball, and the free-kick was given.
"Some four minutes later, he give another free-kick in a similar position, which again, we felt wasn't a free-kick."
