Arsenal - Alex Song Facing Jail Time?

Arsenal - Alex Song Facing Jail Time?

The Daily Star (Yeah, yeah, I know) is reporting that Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, could be facing some jail time after kicking the snot out of a student in a bar in his home town of Douala.

Song was allegedly in a bar when a fight broke out and Alex rained down punches on the man who claims it was an unprovoked attack.

Speaking on behalf of the student, his lawyer said

"My client was severely beaten. We have witnesses who are ready to speak out.

"My client is a student at Douala University and he never provoked the footballer at any time. We know justice will be done."

The Daily Star went on to claim that the case had to be adjourned after Song failed to show up at court.

I tend to take anything the Daily Star says with a pinch of salt, but after seeing Alex walk ignorantly away from referees who are impatiently blowing their whistle at him, I can`t shake the picture from my mind of Song sauntering off from the courthouse with judges and lawyers screaming at him to return.

Well if Song did commit the crime, I guess he'll have to face the music...*promptly gets coat*

A spell inside could toughen him up to our advantage.

What u mean we could let him loose in the oppositions showers at half time Vin?

Wouldn't read much into this until we know it's true from a Club Source, but if it is then yes he should be punished.
05/07/2011 14:09:00
If true, I suppose it's great that he's showing some of that English Steel like Joey Barton and Lee Bowyer- don't we need that? Now, if RvP cheated on his wife with Theo's girlfriend we'd probably be back in the good graces of the English media.

Yeah, something like that Niko - he could intimidate them with the additional hard man tattoos he's got from being inside hehe
