Leeds and Bolton Wanderers have both been charged by the FA after the shenanigans in the recent match at Elland Road.

Per the club’s official website:

Leeds United and Bolton Wanderers have been charged following their EFL Championship fixture on Saturday [23 February 2019].

It is alleged that they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 69th minute.

In addition, Phil Parkinson has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 69th minute.

Both clubs and the Bolton manager have until 18:00 on 01 March 2019 to respond to the charge.

I wonder if Parkinson will claim that he was indicating to Pontus Jansson that he thought that the Sweden defender was number one.
