St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas is facing further sanctions after being summoned to appear before a Scottish Football Association disciplinary panel.
Lomas is currently serving an eight-match touchline ban after being sent to the stands during Saints' 1-1 draw with Celtic in October.
The Saints boss was handed a six-match suspension last week which in turn activated a suspended two-match ban.
That hearing came a day after he was sent off against Hibernian at McDiarmid Park last Wednesday night and it is his actions in that game which will be under scrutiny.
Lomas was sent to the stand by referee Craig Thomson, shortly after Nigel Hasselbaink missed a penalty and before Hibs netted a later winner.
He is accused of a breach of disciplinary rule 203, specifically "misconduct at a match by failing to behave in a responsible manner as an occupant of the technical area by kicking a water bottle carrier causing water bottles to land in the stand."
The former Northern Ireland midfielder has until Wednesday 12 December to respond to the notice of complaint with a principal hearing scheduled for 20 December.
