    No Charge, What Card Did He Play

    charges for Cole over air gun

    10 March 2011 09:59am Football star Ashley Cole will escape prosecution for shooting a work placement student with an air gun at Chelsea FC's training ground.
    Police sources said officers were "highly unlikely" to pursue investigations any further after contacting the Premier League club.
    Tom Cowan, 21, was accidentally hit by a pellet from a .22 air gun brought into the training ground by Cole on February 20.
    But the sports science student has no plans to press charges against the ex-husband of X Factor judge Cheryl.
    The decision comes after Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti angrily hit out at calls for Cole to be disciplined, adding: "What do we have to do now - kill him?"
    Surrey Police received no formal complaints despite Cole breaking club rules which ban weapons from Chelsea's training ground.
    Mr Cowan, who is on a one-year work placement at Chelsea, was hit in the side by a lead pellet at the training ground in Cobham. Chelsea's medical staff reportedly treated the bleeding wound and he did not require hospital treatment.
    The club vowed to take "appropriate action".
    It is not the first time 30-year-old Cole's behaviour has landed him in trouble, with the left-back going through a rocky split from his ex-wife amid claims that he had been unfaithful.
    He was also investigated by club officials after allegations arising from a pre-season US tour in 2009.

    I just dont know the answer to this, so maybe someone can shed some light ,whats the difference between a football player with pockets of money armed with a weapon and joe bloggs ?????

    surely this does need to be defined.

    I am at a loss, if it were you or I, and we had harmed an individual in a similar fashion, to Mr.Cole, then we would without doubt, have the police on our tail,so why not our Mr.Cole.

    Someone from the big organisations of BASC or NGO needs to clarify this situation, or has Mr.Cole set a precedent for future claims

    I can't tell you, but maybe if anyone who would like an answer could fill out the online enquiry form that Surrey Police very helpfully provide, they might get an answer.

    Shocking, I bet the lad was heavily compensated.
    It just proves that if you have sufficient money you are above the law!

    All the guys here who have never in their lives did anything stupid should just get together a form a lynch mob.

    You could then hang anyone who transgresses your idea of apprpriate behaviour, whether that relates to deer stalking or not......

    There seems to be a definite holier than thou flavour developing around here which is getting pretty fecking tedious.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
