A Newcastle United supporter has been slapped with a three-year football banning order for “shaking his penis” at Spurs fans at Wembley Stadium, last season, during their 1-0 defeat.
The Newcastle supporting grandad dropped his trousers and flashed opposing fans for five-to-ten seconds.
The 58-year-old has also been given a six-month community order not to mention being fined £600 for his bizarre actions.
Prosecutor Brian Payne told the court: “This case involves the deliberate exposure of the defendant’s penis at the opposing fans at Wembley Stadium. He’s a Newcastle fan,” via Chronicle Live.
“He was fairly rapidly detained and subsequently interviewed. He was asked how much he had to drink and he said he’d drank between six and seven pints between 4pm and 9pm.
“The court have to consider if making a football banning order would help prevent violence or disorder at any football match.
“If you are not so satisfied, you must, in open court, state your reasons.
“The Crown would say it would help prevent disorder, the defence say it would not.”
Steinmetz’s solicitor claims his client acted in a “moment of sheer stupidity”.
“He’s gutted, disappointed, angry and embarrassed with himself,” he said.
“He’s not someone who is a risk of violence in the future. This is a one-off in relation to disorder.
“He will be a church mouse when he goes to matches in the future. He will ensure he won’t drink at all and ignore any goading.”
