Football hard-man Vinnie Jones ,43, has been left with huge scars across his face after he was glassed in a vicious bar brawl.
The footballer turned Holywood actor (famous for grabbing gazza’s goolies in the famous 1988 photo) was left with a huge scar across his forehead, a gouge on his nose and an assortment of cuts and scrapes after a fight with a thug in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
The furious ex-footballer needed 48 stitches after the brawl with Jesse Bickett ,24, after he was smashed over the head with a beer glass.
Bickett faces a year in jail for aggravated assault charges, but his lawyer Manny De Castro insists that it was Vinnie who started the fight: ” Vinnie started the fight over a game of pool. He punched and head-butted Mr Bickett, who then hit back with a beer glass”.
