A supporter of Premier League outfit Leicester City has, on Thursday, been slapped with both a whopping stadium ban, and a prison sentence.
The sanction at hand comes on the back of the actions of the individual, named as Cameron Toner, during Leicester’s FA Cup defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest earlier this month.
Remarkably, as a group of the latter’s players wheeled away towards the sideline in celebration, Toner made his way over the hoardings and onto the pitch, to make his frustrations known.
Not only that, but, in frankly disgraceful scenes, the Foxes fan went on to throw a series of punches at Forest’s players, before eventually being dragged away by the security presence in attendance:

Toner, in turn, was always likely to be hit with a considerable sanction on the part of both the football and justice systems.
And, on Thursday, precisely that has been confirmed.
As per a host of reliable sources, the Leicester City supporter has been sentenced to four months in youth custody, after pleading guilty to three charges of assault by beating.
As per the Daily Mail:
Nottingham Magistrates’ Court heard the 19-year-old ‘took exception’ to Forest players Djed Spence, Brennan Johnson and Keinan Davis celebrating their third goal of the game and ‘entered their place of work with the malevolence of a bad loser’.
Not only that, but, after admitting to a separate charge of entering the field of play during a football match, the Whetstone native was also handed down a 10-year football banning order.
