Steven Gerrard arrested for assault
Liverpool captain caught up in restaurant brawl
Obviously delighted with the two goals that helped embarrass Newcastle yesterday, Steven Gerrard MBE went to a restaurant on Bold Street, Southport, Merseyside. The night didn’t end well, however, as the Liverpool captain ended up in a brawl that led to his arrest:
Police were called at about 0230 GMT following a disturbance at a restaurant in Southport, Merseyside. Six men were detained later in a nearby street.
The men, four from Huyton, one from Formby and one from Litherland, remain in police custody.
A 34-year-old man from Southport was taken to hospital with facial injuries, not thought to be life-threatening.
The incident is alleged to have taken place at the Lounge Inn, on Bold Street, a restaurant and late night music venue.
It sounds like Stevie G may have been set upon by some local ruffians in some sort of Harry Enfield-esque “You fightin?” scenario, but quite why the assailants were brawling when they could have been robbing his mansion is anyone’s guess.
