LONDON - Football star Andy Carroll paid 11,000 pounds in fees and compensation in an out-of-court settlement with the woman he viciously attacked outside a nightclub.
The Newcastle United striker left Samantha Morrison with permanent facial injuries after he hit her across the face as she celebrated her birthday.
He hit the 19-year-old so hard she needed eight stitches, reports the Mirror.
Carroll ran off leaving his victim screaming and covered in blood.
He was later arrested and cautioned by police.
However, Samantha was so outraged he had got off lightly she launched a civil action against Carroll, who paid 11,000 pounds in fees and compensation in an out-of-court settlement.
“The money means nothing. He should have been jailed. I’ve been left a wreck I get scared when people get too close to me now. I fear they will hit me. My life has changed,” Samantha said. (ANI)
