A man has been charged with assault after throwing a milkshake over Nigel Farage yesterday
It happened in Newcastle city centre
A man has been charged with common assault and criminal damage after he threw a milkshake over Farage during his visit to the city.
It was confirmed yesterday, that Paul Crowther had been arrested in association with the attack. Northumbria Police released a statement this morning adding that the 32-year-old from Throckley had been charged.
Yesterday, the Brexit party leader was 'shaked' outside Eldon Square. Farage was visiting Newcastle for a Brexit Party walkabout ahead of the upcoming elections, this Thursday.
In a statement released shortly after the incident, Northumbria Police said: "At around 1pm, a 55-year-old man had a milkshake thrown at him in the city centre. A 32-year-old man was detained at the scene and arrested by police."
He will appear before North Tyneside Magistrates Court on June 18th.
After the incident yesterday, Paul Crowther, known as @themadbrewery on Twitter, tweeted: "I fucking did it, it was Farage, I can't believe I did it". His profile has since been made private.
