Man charged after attack on Aston Villa's Jack Grealish

A man has been charged with assaulting Aston Villa player Jack Grealish during the second city derby at Birmingham City.

Paul Mitchell is also charged with invading the pitch and will appear before magistrates today. 

Match commander, Superintendent Nick Rowe, said: “An attack on a player is completely unacceptable and outrageous. 
"The vast majority of people were well behaved but unfortunately the occasion has been marred by this.
"We currently have a man in custody for questioning and will be working with Birmingham City Football Club as we fully investigate what happened."
