Club hang on for outcome of police probe into Rolando Aarons arrest

5 years ago

Rolando Aarons was one of nine people arrested at 3am on Sunday morning at Livello vbar/nightclub which is on Dean Street, just up from Newcastle Quayside.

The police say confirmed a major disturbance had broken out and one person was taken to hospital, whilst nine were arrested.

The fight is reported to have started when Rolando Aarons went ‘berserk’ with a group of men who were dancing and ‘bumping and grinding’ with his auntie, then started filming it.

The Mail have now said that their information is that the club are holding off making a decision until the police finish their investigation into the involvement of Rolando Aarons in the fracas.

On Monday The Sun quoted sources:

‘It took five bouncers to control his auntie, who also got involved. It was bedlam.

‘It was all treated as a joke and Rolando Aarons laughed it off. When they started to film it, Rolando’s mood changed and he took great offence.

‘He told them to stop. His view was that they had had their fun and it was going too far.

‘They were throwing tables and bottles of champagne.

‘There was blood everywhere by the end.’

Northumbria Police:

‘Police are appealing for information after a disturbance at Livellos night club in Newcastle on Sunday, October 9.

‘At around 3am, officers attended the scene where a large altercation had broken out in the club.

‘Nine people have been arrested and bailed pending further enquiries.

‘One man attended hospital with facial injuries.’

It hardly paints a great picture when a Newcastle player who is ‘working’ his way back from injury, is out clubbing at 3am in the morning, never mind getting involved in, or even allegedly initiating, something like this.

Rolando Aarons turns 21 next month and has only started a measly total of four league matches for Newcastle in his career.

After rewarding the winger with a new and improved five year contract in August, Rafa then entrusted Rolando Aarons with a start in the first home game of the season against Huddersfield. Aarons had a shocker and was hauled off at half-time, with Matt Ritchie who was carrying an injury, having to come on and try to retrieve the situation as United trailed.

The young winger has had a nightmare with injuries but any sympathy disappears if he isn’t showing 100% commitment to doing everything he can to help himself and the club back into the Premier League.

Rolando Aarons has some ability but the reality is that he has really built a bit of a reputation on next to nothing of substance and has to knuckle down if he is to make anything of himself.

As an amusing footnote to this episode, the player then posted this message along with a photo (see below) of his son on Twitter:

“The greatest joy in life is being a dad! Happy birthday to my son on his 1st birthday.”

In years to come, you can imagine the conversation…

‘How did you celebrate my first birthday daddy?’…

‘Well son, as I didn’t have to play for Newcastle at the time, I was out until 3am clubbing – watching your auntie bumping and grinding a load of blokes she’d just met, then the champagne bottles started flying, next thing I knew I was in handcuffs, then lying in a police cell…yes son, I’ll always remember that very special first birthday!’
