Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been arrested on charges of assault in a local nightclub in Southport, Merseyside. A 34-year old man, who is said to be a DJ, was reportedly hurt in a fight that started in Lounge Inn where Gerrard was celebrating his team’s 5-1 Sunday victory at Newcastle.
“Merseyside Police is investigating an assault that took place in the early hours of Monday December 29 on Bold Street in Southport.
“At around 2.30am this morning officers attended a disturbance at a licensed premises on Bold Street. Six men were arrested on suspicion of section 20 assault, on Lord Street.”
No other footballer was arrested with Steven. His wife Alex Curran was seen near the police station but didn’t answer any press questions. However, the sister of the Lounge Inn co-owner, Dario Curcillo, was kind enough to confirm that the England National was there to celebrate.
“As far as I know he comes here regularly and it was just a normal night at the bar,” she said. “I don’t know anything about what happened last night.”
Gerrard scored twice and helped setting up one goal in Liverpool’s win to stay atop the Premiership table.
