Reds fan banned 3 years for Barca fountain push
A Liverpool fan filmed pushing a man into a fountain before a Champions League semifinal first leg in Barcelona has been banned from attending all games for three years.
Merseyside Police say 57-year-old Anthony Mullen has appeared at a criminal court in Bootle, near Liverpool, on Wednesday.
Film of a second incident in May, of him pulling down the pants of a match steward before a Premier League game at Anfield, also circulated on social media.
Merseyside officer Superintendent Paul White said "two innocent men were targeted and humiliated by Mullen."
The officer said police "would like to thank the members of the public, including Liverpool fans, who helped us to identify Mullen."
A banning order prevents a fan from "attending any regulated football matches during that time."
