Bowyer Court Case

Bowyer Court Case

Newcastle midfielder Lee Bowyer entered a not guilty plea to breaching the public order act by allegedly attacking Newcastle United team-mate Kieron Dyer during a game against Aston Villa last season. It all kicked off in dramatic style as the two players slugged it out, but Newcastle jumped to the defence of Dyer, who they claimed was only defending himself.

Bowyer, 29, did not appear at Newcastle upon Tyne magistrates court, which is expected to hear the full case in May.

The footballer, who was fined six weeks' wages and given a four-match ban by the club after the incident last April, denies intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress to Dyer at the club's ground in the city, St James' Park.

Both players were paraded outside the training ground the following Monday, hugging and shaking hands. But despite efforts by the club to laugh off the matter, Northumbria Police had other ideas.

Police prosecutions are rarely brought when players hit players of another team - so why has this case happened? Then again, if it is a crime to hit someone, then it shouldn't matter where it happens. If I leathered one of my colleagues, I'd be sacked and possible taken to the police (but I doubt it). Problem is, this happened in front of a global audience.
