Liverpool’s Gerrard arrested

Gerrard charged for bloodying a Brit

Gerrard charged for bloodying a Brit

English Premier League footballer and Liverpool captain; Steven Gerrard was arrested early Tuesday morning. Gerrard was out drinking and celebrating the 5-1 stomping of Newcastle on Sunday when a fight occurred outside a bar. The fight left a DJ hospitalized with a broken tooth and other facial injuries. Gerrard and two others were charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray. The charges carry a maximum five-year sentence.

Gerrard is probably the most important player on the pitch for Liverpool, not to mention the face of their franchise for the better half of the past decade. With these charges, he may have hindered the hopes of supporters since Liverpool took over the top spot in the Premier league this past weekend. Maybe the DJ was playing an Arsenal fight song or just ran his mouth, which deserved a whacking. Nevertheless, if the captain tells you he wants to hear the new Britney song, you better play that track. Broken glass and drops of blood were found on the floor of the bar. Maybe Mr. DJ shouldn’t be commenting on Gerrard’s cranberry juice choice of drinking.

The Liverpool club has offered their full support to Gerrard. “Steven has been an outstanding servant to Liverpool for the last ten years and the club will give him all the support he needs at this time,” He will appear in court next month for these charges.

Bloody Brits!
