In a bizarre incident, a drunk England spinner Monty Panesar urinated on bouncers after he was thrown out of a nightclub in Brighton early hours on Monday and has been fined by the police, reports said.
The 31-year-old spinner had been partying at the Shooshh club on Brighton’s beachfront. However, when a group of women complained he was hassling them, Panesar was asked to leave, Sun reported.
Panesar proceeded to the promenade above the club and relieved himself on the bouncers standing below. The bouncers then chased Panesar until he was cornered in a nearby pizza parlour, according to the report.
The bouncers dragged Panesar back to the club and called the police. He was fined 90 pound sterling by the Sussex police.
A Sussex police spokesman said, “A 31-year-old man received a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly after being seen urinating in public near the Shooshh Club in King’s Road Arches, Brighton, around 4.13 am on Monday.”
Panesar later released a statement, through his spokesperson, offering an “unreserved apology” for his behaviour.
“Monty would like to apologise unreservedly for any offence caused.” The cricketer’s spokesperson has since apologised on his behalf.
Sussex County Cricket Club has launched an investigation into the incident.
A statement on the club’s website read: “Sussex County Cricket Club can confirm that an incident took place involving Monty Panesar in the early hours of Monday on 5 August. The matter is under full investigation and the club will make no further comment at this stage.”
