Steven Gerrard arrestedBy now you must have surely heard the news about Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and his involvement in a pub brawl last Sunday which led to his arrest by the police. Gerrard was apparently out celebrating his team’s victory over Newcastle with the emphatic 5-1 score when he became involved in a brawl with a number of other men in a Merseyside bar. The brawl resulted in one man being injured and taken to hospital.

Gerrard was arrested with the rest of the men involved in the incident and taken to the local police station for questioning. He was later released and he will be able to continue helping his team stay at the top of the Premier League.

Unfortunately, the 28-year old footballer is not off the hook yet. Police have charged him with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray, a charge that can send him to prison for up to 5 years. And all that for a fight that started because of a disagreement over what music should be playing at the pub. I guess soccer players are not that smart after all! I just hope that this incident does not have an impact in his game because Liverpool badly needs him to be at his best as they try to win their first Premier League title in 20 years.

Let’s see how this all plays out in the end.
