Super Scouser Steven Gerrard was today acquitted at Liverpool Crown Court on charges of affray.
Despite video evidence showing Gerrard intimidating, and finally attacking Marcus McGee "like a professional boxer" at the Lounge Inn, in Southport, Merseyside, the jury chose to acquit.
Amazingly, the jury decided that Gerrard was not the aggressor, even though he repeatedly punched McGee at the bar.
A spokesman for McGee described the verdict as a 'travesty of justice' given that Gerrard could clearly be seen throwing punches on CCTV footage.
Gerrard's excuse, that he was acting in self defence, seems laughable to most observers. McGee was standing alone at the bar when he was set upon by Gerrard and his mates.
Wow, he must have posed some threat.
Neutral observers report that it's extremely rare for a Scouser to fight his way out of an intimidating situation. They usually just curl up and give up the ghost.
Unless they outnumber the opposition by a ratio of 10:1
One observer said that the verdict was the biggest travesty of justice since Michael Jackson escaped charges of paedophilia.
"They were both as guilty as sin. Where's the justice?" one bitterly disappointed observer told us.
More miscarriages of justice as we get them.
