Everton Fan Jailed

Recommended Posts

An Everton fan has been jailed for eight weeks after attacking opposition players while holding his young son in his arms.

Michael Fitzpatrick was seen holding his three-year-old son in one arm, dummy in mouth, and using his other to grapple or punch at opposition players during a Europa Cup tie between Everton and Lyon last October.

Footage of the incident went viral as Fitzpatrick was seen carrying the child among other fans pulling and throwing punches as players grappled near the touchline at Goodison Park.

The 30-year-old, from Derby Square, Prescot, Merseyside, later said he felt "ashamed" by his behaviour and feared his ex will ban access to their children.

i presume he was jailed for having a dummy in his mouth despite being a grown adult.

Good. 

No a "fan" of any description, just a thug.

As much as I poked fun at the incident at the time, it's a joke that he's doing time for it really isn't it? If a similar incident happens away from a football ground he's not going to jail for it.
