English rugby star ordered to pay 175-pound compensation for assaulting two women

London, Aug 15 (ANI): An English rugby league player has reportedly been given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay a 175 pound-compensation after he was found guilty of assaulting two women after ‘photo bombing’ their picture in December 2012.

According to the Mirror, Hull FC winger Jason Crookes had grabbed Hull University student Amy Williamson from behind as she posed for her friend Jodie White in a bar, and then had slapped Williamson in the resulting argument.

After Williamson hit him back, Crookes reportedly followed the two women into the street and gave White a black eye after she reprimanded him for hitting a woman.

The local magistrate court gave a hearing that Crookes was later tracked down when the photograph was put in the local paper, with the report adding that although he denied assaulting the students, he was found guilty. (ANI)
