A video has emerged of Newcastle United supporters celebrating their late equaliser at AFC Bournemouth, but some of them spilled out onto the pitch.
The moment came in the 90th minute when Matt Ritchie hit a spectacular half-volley into the top corner to make it 2-2 and produce wild scenes from the away end.
As the players ran to celebrate with the Magpies fans, the celebrations in the stands spilled out onto the pitch, however it’s claimed one fan was pulled by a steward over a barrier and onto the pitch before getting arrested.
@FSF_FairCop tweeted: “I’ve just spoken to the mother of one of the #NUFC arrested at Bournemouth on Saturday. He was released without charge because CCTV clearly showed a steward pulling him over a barrier and on to the pitch.
“The young man was held for approximately 20 hours.”
