Police interview man over trouble at Everton game

A man is under investigation on suspicion of assault and affray after touchline trouble at an Everton match.

One angry Everton fan appeared to get involved in the bother while holding a child sucking a dummy.

Footage of the fan appearing to grapple with opposition players while carrying the youngster went viral.

Everton have banned one fan for life and were charged by UEFA for failing to control their supporters during Thursday night's Uefa cup tie.

On Saturday Merseyside Police said a man, aged 30, had been interviewed on suspicion of assault and affray and has been released under investigation.

The incident happened during the second half of the first leg with the home side trailing visitors Lyon.


Everton charged by UEFA and supporter banned after touchline incident

Everton have banned the fan who appeared to try to strike Lyon's Anthony Lopes while holding a child, with UEFA also charging the club for the crowd trouble during Thursday's Europa League tie.

The second-half melee sparked by Ashley Williams at Goodison Park, which is being investigated by Merseyside Police too, saw a supporter in the Howard Kendall Gwladys Street End push OL goalkeeper Lopes in the head before hitting out at him again.

Everton have announced that supporter will be banned from their future games and UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Toffees for "aggressions by supporters against players".
