Carroll ordered to live with club captain

Newcastle striker Andy Carroll was bailed to live with his club captain today after appearing in court charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

Wearing jeans and a dark hooded top, Carroll was driven away from Tynedale Magistrates’ Court in Hexham, Northumberland, in a people carrier with blacked-out windows.

He was charged with assaulting Laurie Henderson, an ex-girlfriend, at her home in Ponteland, Northumberland, some time after 4.30am yesterday.

Following an hour-long hearing he was granted conditional bail to live with captain Kevin Nolan at his family home, also in Ponteland, a 15-minute walk from the complainant’s address.

Magistrates agreed Carroll does not have to stay overnight at Mr Nolan’s home when Newcastle are playing.

The player was told he must not contact any prosecution witnesses.

Carroll, who gave his address as the Jesmond Dene Hotel, Newcastle, will deny the offence and claims self-defence, the court heard.

The case was adjourned until January 10.
