It has not been a good month for David Moyes. In late April, he was fired as coach of Manchester United after one middling season. And now he’s allegedly getting into scraps at wine bars, per the Guardian.

Police are investigating reports of an assault in a wine bar in Lancashire allegedly involving the former Manchester United manager David Moyes and another man.

Moyes, 51, who was sacked last month by Manchester United with four games to go before the end of his first season, was in a wine bar in Clitheroe on Wednesday evening.

Police said there was an incident in the wine bar, the Emporium, which was now under investigation.

In a statement Lancashire police said: “Police are investigating a report of an assault at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe.

“Officers attended the bar at about 10pm on Wednesday and it was reported that a 23-year-old local man had been assaulted by a 51-year-old man. He did not require hospital treatment.

No one has been arrested as police comb over security-camera footage and interview witnesses. Sky News is calling it a “minor scuffle” that happened outside the wine bar, with none of the involved requiring a trip to the hospital.
