Arabnews24.ca:Wednesday 17 August 2022 10:45 AM: Cristiano Ronaldo has been cautioned by police after footage emerged of the Manchester United forward appearing to smash a phone out of an Everton fan's hand at a match.
Merseyside Police said in a statement: "We can confirm that a 37-year-old man voluntarily attended and was interviewed under caution in relation to an allegation of assault and criminal damage.
"The allegation relates to an incident following the Everton v Manchester United football match at Goodison Park on Saturday April 9.
"The matter has been dealt with by way of conditional caution. The matter has now concluded."
A caution is not a criminal conviction, acting more as a formal warning which can be used as evidence of bad character if the person goes to court for another crime in the future.
