Gazza fined £1,000 after admitting assault and disorderly charges

By Catherine Wylie

Former England soccer star Paul Gascoigne has been fined £1,000 after he admitted common assault and drunk and disorderly charges linked to an incident at a railway station when he appeared at Stevenage Magistrates' Court today.

The ex-footballer, who has battled alcoholism for many years, admitted two charges when he appeared at court today.

The former Newcastle United and Tottenham midfielder, who lives in Gateshead, was arrested after officers were called to Stevenage rail station in Hertfordshire at around 10.30pm July 4.

Gascoigne (46) who received treatment for alcoholism in an American clinic earlier this year, was originally charged with two counts of assault, one involving his ex-wife Sheryl, but that charge was dropped.
