A man has been charged for his role in Sunday’s protests against the Glazer family’s ownership of Manchester United.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) on Tuesday revealed that a man had been charged with “throwing fireworks in a street, use of threatening behaviour and wilful obstruction of the highway” outside the Lowry Hotel.
In a statement, GMP said Michael Anthony James Cusker, 28, had been bailed ahead of a court appearance at Manchester Magistrates Court on 25 May.
The statement continued: “The incident has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct to ensure complete transparency and independence in this investigation.”
GMP, Man United and the Premier League condemned the protests – which led to two police officers being injured, with one requiring emergency treatment.
