Ex-Premier League striker Marcus Bent 'faces jail after admitting affray'

Former Premier League striker Marcus Bent is facing a jail term after admitting affray following an incident that left him tasered by police in September.

Former Premier League striker Marcus Bent is facing a jail term after admitting affray following an incident at his home in September last year.

The 37-year-old was tasered by police after he allegedly charged at them with a 15-inch knife and a meat cleaver when they approached his home after responding to a report of a break-in.

Bent initially pleaded not guilty to one count of affray and two of possession of a bladed article in October.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Bent, who previously admitted to one count of possessing a class A drug, pleaded guilty to the charge during a hearing at Guildford Magistrates' Court.

The case was adjourned until February 12.
