The Daily Star (Yeah, yeah, I know) is reporting that Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, could be facing some jail time after kicking the snot out of a student in a bar in his home town of Douala.

Song was allegedly in a bar when a fight broke out and Alex rained down punches on the man who claims it was an unprovoked attack.

Speaking on behalf of the student, his lawyer said

“My client was severely beaten. We have witnesses who are ready to speak out.

“My client is a student at Douala University and he never provoked the footballer at any time. We know justice will be done.”


The Daily Star went on to claim that the case had to be adjourned after Song failed to show up at court.

I tend to take anything the Daily Star says with a pinch of salt, but after seeing Alex walk ignorantly away from referees who are impatiently blowing their whistle at him, I can`t shake the picture from my mind of Song sauntering off from the courthouse with judges and lawyers screaming at him to return.
