Eric Dier dodges police rap for confronting Tottenham fan in stands – but still faces ban from playing – The Sun

ERIC DIER has escaped any criminal action for climbing up the stands to confront a fan.

Police concluded their probe into the behaviour of the Tottenham and England star and decided no action will be taken.

But a month after losing his rag at the end of the FA Cup defeat to Norwich, Dier is still waiting to see if he will be hit with a playing ban.

The Spurs star flipped when he saw his brother confronted by an irate fan seconds after the shootout exit to the Canaries on March 4.

Dier, 26, clambered over several rows of seats towards the supporter and had to be held back by fans and stewards.


Police were forced to launch an investigation to see if he had committed any criminal act, but after reviewing footage and statements they have decided there is no case.

The Met said: “The investigation concluded with no further action.”

That will come as a welcome boost to Spurs and Dier – but the FA could yet take action.

Wembley bosses were waiting for the police inquiry to finish before starting disciplinary proceedings.

Dier revealed the coronavirus lockdown has also seen him take up gardening.

He said: “We’re using wood to make the beds for vegetables, fruit, herbs as well — I’d prefer to be playing football, but it has been fun.”
