Newcastle supporter banned for three years for shaking penis at Tottenham fans

A Newcastle supporter has been banned from attending football matches for three years after he “shook his penis” at Tottenham fans last season.

Keith Steinmetz who is also a youth football coach, dropped his pants and flashed the fans for five-to-ten seconds after drinking six or seven pints.

He was also given a six-month community order and fined £600 for the offence.

The flasher was reported to the FA and he tried to contest the banning order, but he was overruled this week in court.

Prosecutor Brian Payne told the court: “This case involves the deliberate exposure of the defendant’s penis at the opposing fans at Wembley Stadium. He’s a Newcastle fan.

“He was fairly rapidly detained and subsequently interviewed. He was asked how much he had to drink and he said he’d drank between six and seven pints between 4pm and 9pm.”

Solicitor Jonathan Stirland told the court he had reacted badly in a “moment of sheer stupidity”.

He said: “He’s gutted, disappointed, angry and embarrassed with himself.

“He’s not someone who is a risk of violence in the future. This is a one-off in relation to disorder.

“He will be a church mouse when he goes to matches in the future. He will ensure he won’t drink at all and ignore any goading.”


Unsurprisingly, there was reaction on social media to this story, check it out on the next page.
