Wee problem! Fan ‘urinates in player’s water bottle’

A MIDDLESBROUGH fan has made a wee mistake and could be banned from watching his beloved team.

Social media video shows a man reseal a water bottle and throw it onto the pitch behind the Queens Park Rangers goal at their Loftus Road ground in London during Boro's 3-0 win on Saturday.

The man had allegedly urinated in the bottle, which belonged to QPR's goalkeeper, Alex Smithies. It is not known if Smithies drank from the bottle.   Police said on Twitter: "I've been asked by a few followers and can confirm the so called @Boro fan who urinated in the @QPRFC goalie bottle was arrested by colleagues from @MPSFootballUnit.

"Disgusting act and I will do all I can to remove him from attending Boro games again."

London's Metropolitan Police said a man was charged with throwing an item onto the pitch and will appear in court.

The force's football unit tweeted: "After an investigation @MPSFootballUnit can confirm that the male arrested at the @QPRFC v @Boro game yesterday has been charged with throwing an item on to the pitch.

"The male has been bailed and will appear at court next month."
