Ben Stokes? You’ve got your facts wrong there. He’s accused of punching the two lads with the first name Ryan and is accused of affray with one of the Ryan’s.


#4543

Yep, he is accused of homophobia too


#4544

Homophobia is rife in cricket


#4545

That’s news to me. Haven’t seen that reported anywhere. Maybe you could post up the specifics of this offence of homophobia, you’re alleging that Stokes has been charged with.

Stokes is charged with Affray contrary to Section 3(1) and (7) of the Public Order Act 1986 and Common Assault contrary to Section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988.

Read the reports mate

I’ve been reading the courts reports every day. The ones that I have been reading state that Stokes has been charged with Affray contrary to Section 3(1) and (7) of the Public Order Act 1986 and Common Assault contrary to Section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988.

You’re claiming that he’s been charged with another offence that I haven’t seen mention of in any of the courts reports that I have read. Curious as to where you’ve come up with this information.

Playing at the moment anyway. Umpires checking the light. Nine down now.


#4555

Cat got your tongue?


#4556

Yes,he was accused of homophobia


#4557

No. Assault and affray.


#4558

No,he was up on trial for that


#4559

So the Crown Prosecution Service weren’t pursuing any racially motivated charges? That’s quite a climbdown from you.

Huh?

I said the exact same statement
