Drunk Admits Fergie Attack

Sir Alex Ferguson was attacked by a drunk man outside Euston Station. The 43-year-old man pleaded guilty.

Kevin Reynolds approached the boss outside the station and Fergie believed he was a beggar asking for money. He turned out to be not so peaceful after all: he hit SAF - ouch - in the groin, obviously, the Scotman doubled in pain.

Police shortly arrived but Reynolds apparently believed he's got the skills to match Zinedine Zidane. At headbutting he had: in that way he assaulted one of the officers then abused him racially.

He pleaded guilty in front of the court and claimed he had said 'I'm sorry Fergie. I did not know it was you.'

His lawyer told the court that her client was shadow-boxing and meant it as a joke. Sitting magistrate Daphne Wickham responded that she did not think Sir Alex had considered it a joke...

Nor do I and even as a joke, it's an extremely stupid one. I might even believe he though it wasn't really Fergie just someone who looked very much like the United boss. But still, punching a 65-year-old man... soooo brave, isn't it?

Merlin - I hope your are not hinting that Sir Alex likes a drop or 10 of booze? That he somehow 'looks' like a bit of a drinker
I really, really hope you are not trying to make that insinuation... because I wanted to make it. Now I've nowhere to go....
