Former Chelsea Striker Jailed Nine Months For Assault
Dixon, 53, denied punching and kicking the man during an altercation at a pub in May 2014. However, he was convicted following a trial after the assault at The Nags Head in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, was caught on CCTV.
Upon sentencing at Luton Crown Court, Judge Barbara Mensah described the attack as “shocking and sickening to watch”.
Mensah said Kerry, who also played for Millwall and Luton Town during his career, had acted in a “disproportionate, unnecessary and completely over the top” manner.
