Sussex investigates Panesar nightclub incident

August 7, 2013

HOVE, England (AP) — Sussex has launched an investigation after England cricketer Monty Panesar was penalized by police for being drunk and disorderly following an incident in a nightclub.

Panesar was given a fixed penalty notice — effectively a fine — after urinating in public, following his ejection from the Shooshh club in Brighton early Monday.

A statement on the Sussex club website Wednesday said that “an incident took place involving Monty Panesar” and added: “the matter is under full investigation.”

Panesar was included in England’s 14-man squad for the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford which concluded on Monday, but did not play.

The 31-year-old spinner, who has played 48 Tests for England and taken 164 wickets, was left out of the group for the fourth Ashes Test. England has won the series.
