Steven Gerrard arrested for assault

Liverpool captain caught up in restaurant brawl

Steven Gerrard arrested for assault

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.
