Newcastle striker Andy Carroll appeared in court today charged with assault.
Andy Carroll – in court today
But as usual nothing much happened, and the hearing was adjourned until April 29th, when the matter will be committed to the Newcastle Crown Court.
The wheels of justice certainly move very slowly, and that’s putting it mildly.
Andy is accused of hitting amateur player Michael Cook in a Bigg Market nightclub, with a glass. It’s something we would hope Andy can put behind him quickly, and then stay on the straight and narrow.
Carroll, of Carr Road, Prestwick, Newcastle, spoke only briefly to say his name, age and address.
Carroll was released on conditional bail.
The hearing was at the Newcastle Magistrates’ Court for assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
If Andy doesn’t correct his ways, and quickly, he should kiss goodbye to his football career, actions like this are that serious.
