David Healy assault claim court case adjourned


A court case over allegations Northern Ireland football star David Healy assaulted a man in Belfast has been put back until next month.

Healy (33) – who is Northern Ireland's record goalscorer and is dubbed 'King David' by fans – is accused of attacking the man last May.

The address of the former Manchester United and Rangers player, who is currently with Bury FC, was given to the court as Castleview Terrace, Killyleagh

Healy did not attend yesterday's brief hearing at Laganside Magistrates Court and no details of the alleged incident were given.

His barrister, Richard McConkey, asked District Judge Ken Nixon for the case to be adjourned until March 13, which was agreed to by the judge.

The case was first before the court earlier this month with the striker not attending on that occasion either.

According to court papers, the star is accused of assaulting James Geroid Crossan on May 26 of last year.
