BBC NEWS | England | Merseyside | Gerrard cleared after bar brawl - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2...
"Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been cleared of affray after punching a man in a Merseyside bar." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
How did he get away with that? - Kol Tregaskes
Famous people always get away with things that would have us 'normal' people thrown in jail. Same goes for politicians responsible for outright fraud! - travispuk
Ha, and just popped in, Amy Winehouse found not guilty of assault as well. See! - travispuk
"In many legal jurisdictions related to English common law, affray is a public order offence consisting of the fighting of two or more persons in a public place to the terror of ordinary people." I suppose to prove affray you have to prove that there were "ordinary people" in the area and that they were in "terror", neither of which were likely to be true in this case: it was a bar filled with drunken scousers. - Mark H
