2 charged after crowd violence at FA Cup semi

London Police have charged two men following crowd violence

among Millwall fans that marred Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal against

Wigan at Wembley Stadium.

One of the men was charged with racially aggravated behavior and

the other with breaching bail conditions. Fourteen people – 12

Millwall supporters and two Wigan fans – were arrested inside the

stadium during or after the match, and another six Millwall fans

were arrested outside Wembley for offenses including affray and

racist abuse.

Andy Barnes, detective chief inspector of the Metropolitan

Police, says on Tuesday ”a significant investigation is now

underway to identify all involved in order to bring them to justice

in a swift and robust manner.”

The violence was sparked by Millwall fans turning on each other

during the match, which Wigan won 2-0.
