TV star accused of grabbing man by throat in front of his kids


Comedian and star of TV show QI Alan Davies has been accused of grabbing a man by the throat on a day out with his children recently.

The incident occurred at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre in London and the man in question, Eamon O’Connor, spoke to The Sun saying: “When we reached the bottom of the stairs he just turned and went for me. He was growling and not making any sense. The only words I heard were ‘I’ve got my kids with me’.”

The incident, which was said to have happened in October, with police confirming that although an altercation had taken place, no arrests were made: “Police were called on 10 October to reports of an altercation between two men at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre. No parties involved required hospital treatment. One man, aged 48, was interviewed under caution on suspicion of common assault. He was not arrested. Following an investigation which included analysis of available CCTV and speaking to witnesses, a decision was taken that there would be no further action.”

It sounds like things were diffused before they could get any worse!
