Merseyside police confirmed that a ’29 year old man who was injured, voluntarily left the scene’. Barton was hit outside Garlands nightclub in Eberle Street, Liverpool.
Two 21-year-olds are being held on suspicion of a public order offence and are currently in police custody.
As reported by the Shields Gazette.
Why he was attacked is unknown but the more people you wind up, the more attention you undoubtedly attract.
It is all a bit bizarre looking at him from the outside now, when he was on Newcastle’s books you just cringed whenever he hit the headlines because you knew it was never going to be good news.
I don’t wish him any particular harm although I know there will be plenty out there who do, I’m just so grateful that he is somebody else’s problem these days.
