Some really bad off the field news for Liverpool football club today, as one of their players, defender Jon Flanagan, was arrested on charges of assault. The allegations stem from an incident that occurred late Thursday night/early Friday morning.

“Merseyside Police can confirm that Jonathan Patrick Flanagan, aged 24, from Cressington in Liverpool has been charged with Section 39 common assault following an incident on Duke Street in Liverpool city centre at around 3.20am on Friday, December 22,” a Merseyside Police spokesperson told the Liverpool Echo.

As has been often said, nothing good happens after 3 a.m.

Flanagan was released on conditional bail and will appear before Liverpool City Magistrates’ Court on January 2nd. A Liverpool FC spokesman said: “The club has been made aware of an alleged incident involving a member of the first team playing squad.”

“We will be making no further comment on the matter while the process is ongoing with the relevant authorities.”

After spending last season on loan at Burnley, Flanagan is yet to make a single Premier League appearance this season, and has been named to one match day squad as a substitute. The 24 year old has made more than 50 first-team appearances for the club since his debut as a teenager.
