A fan of Birmingham city has been imprisoned for being aggressive to a footballer of Aston Villa, Jack Grealish on the pitch.
27 years old Paul Mitchell begged guilty at the court of Birmingham Magistrates for the harassment and the accusation of intruding on to the playing ground during derby match on Sunday.
He was predicted to 14 weeks in jail and also a suspension order of 10 years banning from the football world. Birmingham City has already told the father of one will be interdicted for the lifetime from their stadium.
Grealish was jabbed by Mitchell in between less than 10 minutes into the live broadcasted game at the St Andrews ground in Birmingham.
Despite the punch, the Villa captain went on to score the goal of the game. The court heard Mitchell planned to run on to the pitch for a “joke” and demanded not to have been drunk while he initiated the on-field attack.
In Worcestershire, the pub worker from Rubery, supposedly told police he thought Grealish “was a k***”.
