Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse: part 2

From our friend Addick-tedKev

Thanks heavens for the principle of Innocent Until Proved Guilty.

When Sky Sport quotes Cleveland Police as saying “a 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug”, that 30-year-old male is Titus Bramble.

Things will change, of course, but Sky reports that he is “currently being questioned by police and is in custody in Stockton-on-Tees” having been arrested in the Yarm area in the early hours of today. Salut! Sunderland is hardly adding much to public knowledge of the matter by mentioning what appears in the mass media.

All sorts of questions arise. None, including those concerning how players behave between matches even when innocent of any criminal conduct, is appropriate to address here for fairly obvious reasons. So I pass on the Sky report without comment, and without feeling able to allow comments to be posted.

And I hope that Titus Bramble turns out to be guilty of no worse offence than failing to be tucked up in his bed three days ahead of a somewhat important football game.

Get back to the knitting! The headline recalls the Phil Bardsley – remember him? – case, which concerned alleged misconduct of the ordinary and decent footballing kind.

Monsieur Salut

  1. The way things are going, the title of the post is not quite right… Part 2 (to be continued) is I think, probably, a more apt title given our current state of disarray!

    Let’s hope there’s nothing in the story

    • I turned my back long enough for the above, entirely blameless comments to appear .. sorry but that’s it because I haven’t time to weed out those that would drive coaches and horses through the contempt act

  2. “Is it true that O’Shea, Brown and Richardson were arrested by Norfolk Constabulary on Monday night for allegedly impersonating Premier League defenders?”

    There was a strong rumour to that effect, but following a brief investigation the police concluded that nobody would have seriously taken such an impersonation seriously and that it was just some students on their way to fancy dress party at the University of East Anglia.

  3. Sorry, but to avoid committing contempt of court or allowing possible interference with the excellent principle of innocence until proved otherwise, I cannot allow comments on this posting. Except for this one.
