Gazza arrested and sectioned!

Why aye man! What's going on?

Former England soccer star Paul Gascoigne has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

He was detained after Northumbria Police arrived on Wednesday night to a hotel in Gateshead.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "Police attended the Hilton Hotel in Gateshead yesterday evening after we received a report of concern for a 40-year-old man staying at the hotel.''

"The man was detained under the Mental Health Act and no-one was injured during the incident.''

Gascoigne has had a troubled history of emotional instability and erratic behaviour.

Once regarded as one of the world's best footballers, Gascoigne's playing career was plagued by personal problems, many linked to his heavy drinking.

He has been treated on a number of occasions for drink and mental health problems.

In 2005, he was hospitalised with pneumonia, sparking fears over his long-term health, and last year he underwent emergency surgery for a perforated stomach ulcer.

He has also had several run-ins with the police over the years.

As one of the few Sunderland supporters in N.I. that has made my day. Haven't been able to stop chuckling for the past ten minutes.... easily amused. :D

Seconded. I'm no stranger to the Stadium of Light (there is, as you know, excellent wheelchair access to the whole of the pitch for the players) and I slightly soiled myself when I read this.

However.

I actually feel sorry for him. Saw him once in one of S'lands more pisspoor nightclubs and the poor bugger got no peace. Everyone needs a picture, everyone has a camera phone, every slapper between Seaburn and Pallion wants a feel. The poor sod gets no rest and he gets drink after drink bought for him without any effort. It's a terrible life to lead.

:lol:

(Although being mental doesn't make you a retard. I've known one or two people who went as mad as rubber, got sectioned and did time in the laughing academy and who are highly intelligent & articulate. Won't comment on what playing for the Toon makes you :) )

I feel kinda sorry for the bloke and hope he gets better and damned soon.

An awfully high % of incredibly talented people seem to have "demons" and go "off the rails".

His goal against Scotland in Euro (whatever) still sticks in my memory as a fantastic bit of football glory as does his "never say die" attitude whenever wearing an England shirt.

PS. Sorry for all those horrible cliches, just didn't have the time/inclination to word it better.
