UF Quick Throw: Gerrard arrested for assault

Dammit.

Liverpool captain/talisman/Chief of Helping Old Ladies Across the Road Steven Gerrard is being investigated regarding an assault late last night at a nightclub. He's never done anything like this before, but I suppose it's never too late to start. 6 other men were arrested shortly after, and one man remains in hospital with facial injuries "not thought to be life-threatening."

I will now begin my "Free Gerrard and Prove His Innocence" dance until this matter is resolved.

His armband says he's Capt. Red,
Gerrard, Gerrard.
He punches Blue Scouse in the head,
Gerrard, Gerrard.

Is there the same gross misconception over what assault is in England too or does it actually mean hitting someone there?

Give him a one game ban and let him serve it against Preston.

I don't like this one bit, somehow United will push to get him suspended for six months.

@ Georger: yeah, I was gonna ask about the battery/assault elements, but its Monday and thus much easier to make fun.
