A man was charged with being a public nuisance on Monday after he allegedly caused annoyance to others at Stadium MRT station following a football match between Liverpool and Bayern Munich on Aug 2.
Muhammad Hafeez Ayub, 30, is accused of repeatedly shouting loudly and walking aggressively towards a crowd at the station at around 9.30pm on that day.
In a series of TikTok posts, a man in a Liverpool jersey can be seen creating a ruckus following the English team’s 4-3 defeat by German side Bayern Munich in a pre-season friendly at the Singapore National Stadium that evening.
In the four videos, the man, whose jersey bore the name of the club’s left-back Andrew Robertson, is seen shouting and hurling profanities at various groups of people.
Police later received a report about the incident.
“Through extensive ground inquiries and with the aid of images from (closed-circuit television) cameras, officers from Bedok Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on (Aug 4),” the police said in a statement.
Hafeez’s case has been adjourned to Aug 28.
Those found guilty of public nuisance can be fined up to $2,000.
If an offender had known that the act would probably cause injury, danger or annoyance to the public, he can be jailed for up to three months and fined up to $2,000.
