Premier League ref, has charges dropped by the Met.

Mark Clattenburg has had a tough time of it ever since the allegations against him were made after the Chelsea and Manchester united match a few weeks ago, but reports have come out that the Metropolitan Police have dropped all charges against the referee due to the lack of hard evidence that they had against him.

The ever controversial Peter Herbert, who is chairman of the Society of Black Lawyers, was the man who had brought the claims to the Mets attention even though he admitted that he had not seen the incident and had no actual concrete evidence to support his claims of whether there was any ‘Racially Aggravated’ language towards Chelsea’s John Obi-Mikel during the game at the beginning of this month.

In a statement published on Sky Sports by the Met, they said: “Enquires were made and no victims have come forward.

“The matter will remain as a recorded incident, but without a victim and/or any evidence that any offence has been committed, the matter cannot currently be investigated.

“Clearly if the situation changes and a victim and/or evidence to support the allegation of a crime comes to police attention then further enquiries will, if appropriate, be made.”

Many believe that Clattenburg is innocent of all the allegations made against him in the emotional fueled game, and because there is nothing to back the claims made by the blues players afetr the match, he will be cleared of any wrong doing after the Football Association finish their investigations into the matter.
