Man accused of headbutting Roy Keane awaits verdict

A 43-year-old man will find out on Thursday whether he has been found guilty of headbutting football pundit Roy Keane at a match.

Scott Law, 43, went on trial last week after pleading not guilty to a charge of common assault in relation to an incident where Keane was allegedly headbutted on September 3 last year.

The incident happened when Mr Keane and fellow Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards were walking to do the final match analysis after Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ court heard.

Law’s defence team alleged that CCTV footage from inside the stadium, shown in court, displayed former Manchester United player Mr Keane elbowing the defendant in the face.

District Judge Angus Hamilton is expected to give his judgment from around 10am on Thursday at the same court.
