Jamie Carragher suspended by Sky Sports over spitting incident


In footage widely shown on British media, Carragher is seen winding down the window of his auto and spitting at another vehicle following Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

Reports suggest that he could face time in prison, as spitting at someone is classed as common assault, which could land the assaulter a fine, community order or up to six months in prison.

"It was a moment of madness, it's hard for me to explain", Carragher said to presenter Sarah Hewson. A male voice can be heard saying "unlucky Jamie lad, 2-1!" before Carragher spits. He also dismissed Carragher's claims he did not see the girl because her seat was reclined.

"I've just watched Carra23 say sorry".

Enquiries are ongoing, though it is understood that Carragher has yet to be contacted by police.

Veteran Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine is among those to have weighed in on the issue, arguing the motorist should be sent to prison.

It is understood Greater Manchester Police have spoken to Mr Hughes but do not plan to prosecute him, though using a phone at the wheel can land you a £200 fine and six penalty points.

"Obviously I've done that with the family, hopefully they accept that, and I'd like to apologise again to them". "People are saying "he should go to jail because he was driving like a lunatic" but the vehicle was basically stopped".

Sky Sports News previously said in a statement: "Sky takes this matter extremely seriously and strongly condemns Jamie's actions, we have made that clear to him in person today and suspended him from his duties".

He said: "It was a moment of madness, it's hard for me to explain". My biggest regret is for the 14-year-old girl to be caught in the middle of it.

"There is no doubt what I have done is disgusting".

"A moment of madness for four or five seconds".

Carragher revealed during his interviews he hadn't offered his resignation to Sky Sports but conceded his future was not in his own hands.

"Jamie should have been to Old Trafford for us tomorrow night", TV3's head of sport Peter Norrelund told Danish media. He is only human and we all make mistakes.
