Roy Keane Assault Emirates Video
After Roy Keane allegedly received a headbutt during Sunday’s victory for Arsenal against Manchester United, a 42-year-old man has been taken into custody on assault charges. After the Gunners’ 3-1 victory, footage from inside the stadium surfaced, showing Micah Richards, a colleague at Sky Sports who works with Keane, pressing a fan against a wall during an agitated altercation. As the game neared its end, it is believed that both commentators left the main television studio at the top of the West Stand and moved towards the field to prepare for their post-game commentary. Alejandro Garnacho thought he had scored for United to take all three points while they were waiting for a lift at the members-only Highbury Bar, but the goal was disallowed by VAR for offside.
When the incident happened, Richards and Keane were about to travel back to the Sky Sports studio to watch replays. According to the Daily Mail, the Irishman was the target of a headbutt that hit him in the chest and chin. A widely shared video clip that surfaced on social media captured the immediate aftermath, with Richards shoving and restraining the accused attacker while a furious Keane stood nearby. The fan fled the incident in a crowd as the experts shouted for security but had to depart in order to be pitch-side before the game ended.
Police have been searching through CCTV material with the assistance of Arsenal to try and identify the supporter, and have now detained a 42-year-old man. ‘Police are investigating an incident at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, 3 September, during which a man was assaulted,’ said a statement from the Metropolitan Police on Monday afternoon. A 42-year-old male was detained on Monday, September 4th, on suspicion of assault (ABH). Police have taken the man to jail. There are ongoing inquiries. Richards and Keane have not yet discussed the incident, and neither of them made any mention of it when they gave their post-game analysis.
