Australian accused of fingering opponent’s bum during football match

by | 5th, February 2012

EDUARDO Nerio, 49, a member of Australia’s over-45s Maroubra United football club, stands accused of poking his finger up an opponent’s bum during a “vigorous” match at Coral Sea Park, Maroubra.

At Sydney’s Downing Centre District Court, Nerio pleads not guilty to charges of indecent assault and common assault.

Nerio says that during a throw in he only pulled the top of the man’s shorts. The alleged victim says Nerio inserted his finger “3cm” inside his anus as they jostled for position. The alleged victim says he complained to the referee, who did not see the incident. He says he has “been violated” and:

“I wouldn’t have chased him if he just pulled at my shorts. I know the difference between someone putting his finger up my arse and someone pulling at my shorts.”

Adding:

“I chased him across the pitch and asked him, ‘What the f … do you think you’re doing? That’s assault’, and he laughed in my face.” 

The player’s shorts have been tendered in evidence – but, oddly, not Mr Nerio’s finger, which was, allegedly, not coated in thick layer of Deep Heat liniment cream…

The case continues.
