Newcastle And Rangers Fans Clash!
A Jarrow man is one of six arrested by police investigating football violence after the recent Newcastle United v Chelsea game ... but with Glasgow Rangers supporters!
The 25-year-old, who has not been named, was arrested on March 3 on suspicion of affray, and bailed pending further inquiries.
Following his arrest, police carried out a number of warrants across Newcastle and Durham last Thursday, arresting three men on suspicion of affray.
One was aged 40 and two aged 43, and they are from Rowlands Gill and the Lanchester and Tow Law areas of County Durham.
On Friday, two more arrests on suspicion of affray were made by police, a man aged 39 from Newcastle and a man aged 40 from Washington.
All five of those subsequently arrested have also been bailed pending further inquiries.
All the arrests are linked to disorder in Raffertys bar at Pink Lane in Newcastle city after the Chelsea match on February 2 - believed to involved United supporters and Rangers fans from Scotland.
"The True Blue" links between Chelsea, Rangers and Linfield go back decades.
And due to the Glasgow club being dumped in amongst the part-timers of the Scottish League, with many grounds not able to handle the massive support of Scotland's No One club ... some of their supporters have renewed their Chelsea connections ... and started following the Blues.
