Andy Carroll had had his hearing today at the Newcastle Crown Court, and he pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm against Michael Cook.
Andy Carroll – goes on trial October 25th
We had hoped there may be an end to the case, but of course no such luck, as Andy’s trial will now begin in Newcastle on Monday, October 25th October.
Andy’s troubles occurred at the Blu Bambu night club in the Bigg Market in Newcastle last December 7th and his trial will be held before Judge John Milford, and is reported to potentially last up to four days.
That’s a bad time to have a trial, as it probably means that Andy will miss some games, but hey, that’s what happens when you get involved in this kind of nonsense.
Heaven knows what happens if he is found guilty, and he could even become the second Newcastle player within a couple of years to spend time in prison, which is not good.
When will they ever learn?
