BREAKING: Man Utd legend Paul Scholes’ son avoids jail for pub attack


MAN Utd legend Paul Scholes’ son Arron has avoided jail after he was found guilty of attacking an old school friend at a pub.

Arron, 19, was found guilty of beating up Robert Kemper as he smoked a cigarette outside a pub.

Today, he was handed a community order.

The incident came after he repeatedly punched the victim following an encounter at the bar, after England’s 2-1 victory over Tunisia at last year’s World Cup.

During the attack Kemper, who was drunk, was lying on his back and offering no resistance during the assault, it was heard.

Prosecutor, Lucy Bridge, said the landlady called the incident “an unprovoked attack”.

Scholes had denied assault by beating and claimed he was “acting in self defence”.
