LONDON, Dec 28 (Reuters) – The former England footballer Paul Gascoigne was concerned in a fracas in a London hotel, a number of witnesses stated, and taken to hospital after sustaining a head damage.
The Metropolitan Police stated officers have been referred to as to a disturbance at London’s Ace Hotel in Shoreditch on Tuesday night time earlier than a 49-year-old man was taken to hospital.
A Scotland Yard spokeswoman stated: “The man has been taken to an east London hospital where he remains in a stable condition.”
Witness Alvin Carpio stated Gascoigne, who has confronted an extended wrestle with alcoholism, was kicked down the steps after an altercation with one other visitor.
Another witness posted on Facebook that it was “a shame” to see Gascoigne in such a state.
Gascoigne’s spokesman, Terry Baker confirmed to the Daily Mirror that Gascoigne was handled in hospital for a head wound. Mr Baker added: “He hasn’t been arrested. He’s about to be released and sent home.”
In September Gascoigne was fined £1,000 after pleaded responsible to racially aggravated abuse at his one-man present.
