Football GIF: Tottenham Fan Hits Linesman With Hurled Smoke Grenade

By Chris Wright

smoke-grenade

Two Tottenham supporters, aged 47 and 25, were arrested by West Midlands Police during the stoppage caused by the smoke bomb incident and the FA have vowed to launch an investigation into the incident.

Thankfully, the lino on duty, Dave Bryan, took the hit like a champ and was ultimately unharmed.

There are (unverified) eye-witness accounts emerging from Tottenham supporter’s forums that the grenade was initially lit by a “youth” in the terraces alongside the 47-year-old chap, who merely launched it pitch-wards in order to clear it from the crowd after the smoke began to choke nearby spectators. The fact that it subsequently hit the linesman was purely accidental.

    Thank Ramsey that flare didn’t stick or get lodged on the official’s skin.
