Newcastle Player Arrested in Local Nightclub

9:50 am, Monday, October 10th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 13 Comments

The Sun is reporting today that Newcastle’s Rolando Aarons was one of nine people arrested at 3am on Sunday morning in a local nightclub.

They are reporting that Rolando became angry when he saw a group of men dancing with his aunt in the Livello nightclub in the city center.

Rolando Aarons in action for Newcastle

Rolando was said to be in the VIP section of the nightclub and is said to have gone ‘berserk’ at the group the way they were dancing with his aunt.

This is what one source told the Sun:

“It took five bouncers to control his auntie, who also got involved. It was bedlam.”

This is what another source said:

“It was all treated as a joke and Rolando laughed it off.”

“When they started to film it, Rolando’s mood changed and he took great offence.”

“He told them to stop. His view was that they’d had their fun and it was going too far.” “They were throwing tables and bottles of champagne.”

“There was blood everywhere by the end.”

As usual there are various accounts of what really happened.

But it’s something that Rafa Benitez will look into quickly and try to ascertain what exactly happened and take any appropriate action he deems necessary.

On the football side of things, Rolando is recovering from a broken foot and recently had the cast removed.

    Another ‘young man with too much money’ story that the press love. Every story has two sides to it and it would be unfair to pass judgement until the facts emerge. He’s allowed to go out and enjoy himself and wherever drink is involved people do the strangest things. Could be serious, could be a storm in a teacup, but people shouldn’t be too judgementalu. He still very young after all.

    Five bouncers… to control his auntie?! 🙂

    As we weren’t there difficult to comment other than he has time on his hands because of his injury and possibly others take advantage of these situations for their own personal moment of fame courtesy of mobile phone footage.
    It’s so predictable and pathetic really.

  • 8 cyprus // Oct 10, 2016 at 10:13 AM

    As predictable and pathetic as it may be, as a footballer who is in the public eye he has got to act accordingly and rise above, many if not most well known professional footballers will get targeted but how many go berserk as Rolando seems to have done, puuting the rights and wrongs about footballers being targeted to one side the fact is they are and rightly or wrongly footballers have got to accept that it will happen and they will have to do what they can to handle these situations, if they can’t handle them then sadly they will have to change their lifestyles, it doesn’t matter if that’s right or wrong, that sadly is life for a footballer.

    Cyprus, sounds like the ideal replacement for Mr T when he moves on. Takes no prisoners.

    Spoof, you’re right to an extent mate, but it sounds like he was sticking up for his aunt in some , possibly, misguided manner. Sometimes situations spiral out of control where drink is involved. Might be better to wait for all the details to come out before blaming him. Sounds like he might’ve had a nice hangover though! 🙂

    Its like I said, blame is not a factor here, he could be and I hope that he is totally innocent but sadly for him it will always be like this, goes with the territory of being a footballer, he has got to learn from this as bad reputations aren’t good for footballers.

    If you and I clobbered someone due to their behavior to one of our family members then to most people that would be fine and possibly a react of well done kidda would/could be given, but rightly or wrongly that is not the case for the likes of Arrons and co, if they can’t handle these situations then they have got to make sure they don’t allow themselves to be in a position where these type of altercations can arise, like I say, no blame but he has got to do better, goes with the territory I’m afraid.
