Sutton drunk tries to take on visiting footy fans

A drunk Sutton man was arrested after trying to start a fight with visiting football fans at a Stags game last month.

Police intervened, but Morley continued to act in an aggressive way towards the fans, and was arrested, the court heard last week.

Morley, who was given a conditional discharge, told the court he had been walking past the ground and reacted to remarks made by fans.

Magistrates said it was not an incident of football-related violence.
