Drunk Panesar fined for urinating
England cricketer Monty Panesar has been fined by police for reportedly urinating on bouncers after being asked to leave a seaside nightclub.
He was shown the door at Shooshh club in Brighton, East Sussex, after some women clubbers complained of being hassled, the Sun newspaper reported.
The paper said the 31-year-old Ashes squad left-arm spin bowler urinated from the promenade above the venue onto doormen standing below before he was hauled back to the club where police were called.
He was issued with a fixed penalty notice by police for being drunk and disorderly.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: "A 31-year-old man received a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly after being seen urinating in public near the Shooshh Club in King's Road Arches, Brighton, around 4.13am on Monday (August 5)."
Panesar, who plays for Sussex, was part of the 14-man England squad that retained the Ashes at Old Trafford, Manchester, on Monday but he did not play.
Sussex County Cricket Club said in a statement: "Sussex County Cricket Club can confirm that an incident took place involving Monty Panesar in the early hours of Monday August 5.
"The matter is under full investigation and the club will make no further comment at this stage."
