Moyes in bar fracas claims to be probed

By Kim Pilling

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is being investigated over an allegation he assaulted a man in a wine bar.

An incident between Moyes (51) and a 23-year-old man is said to have happened in Clitheroe, Lancashire, at about 10pm on Wednesday.

The Clitheroe Advertiser reported that Moyes was having a drink with a friend when an "alleged minor scuffle" broke out in the bar.

A spokesman for Lancashire Constabulary said: "Officers attended the bar at about 10pm and it was reported that a 23-year-old local man had been assaulted by a 51-year-old man.

"He did not require hospital treatment.

"Inquiries are ongoing and we are speaking to a number of people. There are a number of differing accounts which we need to work through to try to establish exactly what has happened. No one has been arrested at this stage."
