Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been charged by police with assault and affray over a brawl outside a bar that left a disk jockey hospitalized with facial injuries.
Merseyside police announced the charge early Tuesday _ 24 hours after Gerrard was arrested in Southport while celebrating Liverpool's emphatic 5-1 victory at Newcastle on Sunday that extended its lead atop the Premier League to three points.
A police official told The Associated Press that Gerrard was charged with assault and occasioning actual bodily harm.
In the altercation outside the Lounge Inn, the bar's 34-year-old DJ had a tooth broken and sustained cuts to his forehead, although he was later released from hospital.
