Coin Thrower Pleads Guilty To Battery
John Billington, the 43 year old fan who threw the 50p coin at the Pompey game has pleaded guilty at Birmingham Magistrates' Court to a count of battery.
His sentance will be decided next month.
I'm surprised the press have released the guys address publicly.
This all came about when a coin was thrown - it is speculated in Harry Redknapps direction - hitting and cutting the head of referee's assistant Phil Sharp.
No doubt Billington will get a lifetime ban from all football grounds, be interesting what the sentance from the court is. I would guess it will be as severe as is possible to set an example to all fans that this isn't in any way, shape or form acceptable behaviour.
