Liverpool Fan Arrested For Racist Gesture (Video)

racist liverpool fanIf you thought the English Football Association’s battle to eliminate racism from the game of soccer was a joke, think again.

Just over one month ago Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was dealt an eight-game suspension for racist comments made towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra.  Apparently, the Liverpool fans learned nothing from that incident, as the storied Premier League club now finds itself in the midst of yet another racial controversy, as a supporter of the team was caught on television performing an imitation of a monkey towards one of Man U’s black players during their FA Cup match-up at Anfield yesterday.

Footage of the incident soon went viral, causing many to file complaints with the police.  The suspect, a 58-year-old man from North Wales, was eventually arrested and questioned by the Merseyside Police before being released on bail.

I guess he got to feel what it’s like to be a real monkey after being caged inside his jail cell for a few hours.  Here is a look at the act that got him there (white jacket on the left side of the screen).
