JUST IN: UK Police drop charges against Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood

The police in the United Kingdom have withdrawn all charges against Mason Greenwood, the controversial Manchester United footballer.

The 21-year-old forward was accused of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault.

According to SkyNews, the trial date has been set for November 27, 2023.

Greater Manchester Police, said, “criminal proceedings had been discontinued by the Crown Prosecution Service.”

TGMP’s Head of Public Protection, Michaela Kerr, said, “it was ‘only fair’ that the force publicised the latest development given the significant media coverage of this case.”

She added, “The investigation team has remained in regular contact with the legal team, providing any updates of note, and so understand the rationale for the discontinuation of proceedings at this stage, and that this decision has not been taken lightly.

“Despite the media and public’s interest in this case, we have decided not to comment on it in any further detail,” she maintained.
