Gerrard arrested following bar brawl

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was arrested early this morning following a bar brawl in Southport which left one man with facial injuries.

Police were called to the Lounge Inn at 2.30am and the 28-year-old England midfielder was amongst six men detained for questioning by police for involvement in the altercation.

Gerrard scored twice yesterday in Liverpool's 5-1 win over Newcastle and the news will be a big blow to the Reds' title hopes. The club's next game is the FA Cup match with Preston on Saturday.
