Paul Gascoigne Arrested After Drunken Assault on Former Wife

11:24 pm, Friday, July 5th, 2013 by Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

There is news coming through in the Daily Mirror, that Paul Gascoigne has been arrested over an alleged drunken attack on a security guard and on his former wife Sheryl.

Paul Gascoigne – arrested after altercation

Paul is alleged to have carried out the alleged assault at a train station, but the news is a little sketchy at the moment.

The 46-year-old was held overnight by police for about 12 hours, and Paul is being accused of grabbing the security guard by the throat and then setting on his former wife Sheryl, as she came to intervene.

The alleged assault took place in Stevenage in Hertfordshire, and unfortunately this is a set-back for Paul, after he seemed to be doing quite well in his ongoing battle against the booze.

Paul went over to the US a few months ago to attend a clinic over here, and when he returned to England his daughter Bianca had said “He’s off the booze.”

This is both bad news and sad news about the Newcastle-born former football great.

    Just another day in the life eh Gazza. Feel sorry for the guy but he needs to find some will power and stay off the booze.

    Gazza is a sad state of affairs…and I fear there’s no way back for him. He’ll end up like George Best sooner or later.

    The sad thing is, it may be better for this tortured soul if that happens sooner rather than later.

    Some people’s candles burn brighter than others but for a shorter time…this man’s candle has been virtually out for a long time now…

    Sad. But he’ll always be a football legend.

    Gazza is an frail,skinny guy surely the security guard knocked him the f**k out for grabbing him round the throat.

    No respect for Gazza, genius on the pitch but what a complete waster off it, George Best MK2.

    Could he have assaulted Kinnear instead?

    Would have done this football club a whole lotta good

    Scumbag. end of. Not many alcoholics get the chance to head off to an expenisve rehab clinic paid for by fellow “celebrities” like Linekar and co. You can only give a man so many chances before you relaise he’s a born scumbag – talent or not. F off Gazza

    Scumbag. end of. Not many alcoholics get the chance to head off to an expenisve rehab clinic in America, paid for by fellow “celebrities” like Linekar and co. You can only give a man so many chances before you relaise he’s a born scumbag – talent or not. Piss off Gazza

    just read through the previous posts and after what i have just seem been written by bill-son and unless he was just stress with the other posts and just decided to give up (which i dout) i think it the final piece of the jigsaw we have probably all had enough. i confirmed it myself when i did that post about when i was thinking he used us as a free advertising and also from the stuff i hear on the radio.
    today the only way we could really seem to be positive is make jokes about Chinese signing.
    the only person i still give my full backing to in alan pardew because really i think deserves a lot more credit than he get because Newcastle are probably the hard team to manage right now and always will be while this stupid owner is hear.

    BTW rotunda post 154 previous thread if you are only happy for Kinnear short term the last thing you should be hoping for is pardew leaves because the signs are everywhere that the fucking joker is the next one in.
    1. the first player who gets sold is a one pardew liked best not a rubbish one such as obatan or willo.
    2. pardew has been so quiet.
    3. as soon as it was confirm that joker arrived what did the bookies do slash their odd of next manager to leave massively he was 20/1 with sky before this nonsense but suddenly went to 11/10 and is 2/1 ATM.
    so if you want pardew out enjoy joker.
