As we were saying in earlier article this morning, we hope that Andy Carroll’s private life doesn’t get in the way of his burgeoning football career.
Andy Carroll - charged with assault
But today we hear that Andy has been charged with assault, following an incident at a nightclub in the Bigg Market in Newcastle last December.
The 21-year-old is accused of attacking another youngster inside the Blu Bambu night club.
Carroll, who now lives in Prestwick, Newcastle, will face magistrates in Newcastle later this month.
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton has banned all Newcastle players from visiting that particular nightclub.
We hope Andy can get this behind him quickly, and that it never happens again, because if it does, he may have to kiss goodbye to a potentially great football career.
