Three deny fighting charges

Robin Hood and former Bermuda footballer Antwan Russell and two other men appeared in Magistrates' Court yesterday over their involvement in fights at a sports club.

Russell, 32, from Warwick, along with Rashaad Cooper, 36, and Joshua Place, 33, pleaded not guilty to taking part in brawls at the Southampton Rangers Sports Club.

The disturbances are alleged to have taken place in the early hours of February 2. It is alleged that Mr Russell and Mr Cooper were involved in the first fight.

Mr Place is alleged to have got into a fight with another man later.

Juan Wolffe, the senior magistrate, adjourned the cases until June 10.

He released all the defendants on bail and ordered them to report to Hamilton Police Station twice a week.

Mr Place, from Warwick, and Mr Cooper, from Pembroke, were also put on a curfew.
