If it turns out to be a sackable offence it's a good excuse for the club to get rid of him.

That'll be 2 new forwards in January then.

I appreciate the ET has to sell papers hence the headline, and assault and police do make for good headline bedfellows in that respect. However as shouting, or slapping someone on the back can warrant an assault charge these days and threatening behaviour could be as straightforward as telling member of the constabulary to piss off are those charges more serious than DD. Not in my eyes, that's far worse even if it's not so headline grabbing
On balance I think the club is probably right, certainly morally, to help the lad who obviously still has some demons lurking in there somewhere, and in view of the fact that it was only a few years ago when GM went through exactly the same thing it could also be accused of total hypocrisy if they didn't. But the lad has certainly let down many young supporters in particular and clearly no role model, but he is our player and though unfashionable to openly discuss such issues, it is a illness and if we are supporting him as appears to be the case, and we can help him then it has to be the right thing to do, but I imagine it was a close call.

If it's drink driving he isn't the first footballer and certainly won't be the last. It's disappointing generally from a fans perspective because you expect a professional sportsman to not over do alcohol in any circumstance. He should be fit for purpose.
It's no wonder he hasn't scored a goal for us. He is fulfilling the stereotype that footballers are pretty stupid. It's just embarrassing all round.

He may just have had a couple of pints and been marginally over the limit - but I doubt it!

This idea that footballers are role models is japes. Never in doubt someone would wheel it out here though. Just a cliche that belongs to yesteryear.

Poor little Timmy of Dogsthorpe :-( Laying on his bed in his Posh pyjamas, slapping his fists on the mattress, crying "Why Ricky, why? Why drink and abuse a policeman? You were my hero and I planned to live my life like you, scoring no goals and everything."

Absolutely. A big disappointment, though not surprised.

exactly ray and while we're at it....

let's not forget that none other than the great grant mccann himself was banned for drink driving for 18 months whilst posh skipper in 2012.

maybe they should have a chat about it over a pint.

I suppose it could have been worse and Miller could have spat at the copper instead of assaulting him, after all isn't that what he's good at!
Perhaps the headlines should read; "MILLER HAS SPAT WITH LOCAL POLICE OFFICER"

Peterborough United striker Ricky Miller has been charged with assaulting a police officer. Miller (28) will appear in court later this month following an incident near the Ortongate Shopping Centre on Sunday (November 5) at around 10.50am. He is also charged with using threatening behaviour and failure to provide a specimen of breath.
Why wouldn't he provide a breath specimen except that he must have known he was way over the limit?
If all of the charges are proven he'll be in for a very big fine and probably a prison sentence.
If it's all true-
I'm disappointed that he would do such a thing. I'll be surprised if he plays for Posh again.

Clubs can be punished by the FA for employing 'known' suspect players. If he is not guilty as charged it will be a different matter. At this moment in time he is innocent until proven guilty. Only time will tell.

Of course footballers are role models. All kids that play football at school or in the backyard yearn to be the next pro player. Nothing wrong with that but I know you are just baiting.

How else has he appeared " to be a bit of a knob" ?
I was referring to his previous.... Kno b biting incident last season and the reported previous taxi driver incident although he was found not guilty of that. It does imply that he's likely to do things again

I'm amazed at the blase attitude to the drink driving offence on here, especially if as it appears to be in the morning. But then again watching football smashed up on the sauce then it shouldn't be that surprising after all?
