Football is a game which at times can play host to a huge amount of hostility amongst the supporters and the players on the pitch. The testosterone-filled environment is brimming with tension, and when moments get a little too testy, it can disappointingly boil over.
This is exactly what happened to former Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara, as the 30-year-old trudged off of the pitch for his new employers Billericay Town of the Isthmian League Premier Division. They faced Jimmy Bullard's Leatherhead FC on Saturday, and lost the tie 3-2
It seems the ex-Premier League man got caught-up a little too much with an opposing fan. The biggest fundamental problem with the altercation, beside it being common assault, is that he appears to in fact attack a child...

"What a waste of money" is what the Leatherhead fans are aiming towards O'Hara, a chant which becomes far too much for him as he takes it upon himself to grapple with a juvenile spectator in the terraces.
After the melee and foul-mouthed hollering, O'Hara was shepherded away by a teammate with some visible difficulty.
