Sawyers charged in sex for heroin plot | News Democrat
A man has been arrested after a racist message was sent to West Bromwich Albion midfielder Romaine Sawyers. West Brom said the "abhorrent message" was sent to Sawyers on social media during their loss to Manchester City. A year-old man, from Kingswinford near Dudley, has been arrested on suspicion of racially abusing the player, West Midlands Police said. On Friday, West Brom said the club would "offer Romaine the relevant support required at this time and continues with its long-standing commitment to help rid football of racism". On Monday, the UK government held talks with current and former footballers about tackling discrimination and abuse. The government plans to introduce new laws on online abuse this year and the Premier League has launched its own online abuse reporting system.
The events will not happen again. Sawyers, 72, was placed on three years of community control to be supervised by the Brown County Adult Parole Authority. Sawyers behaves himself and does what he is supposed to do.
