More shocking was the bloke on Twitter who didn't think it looked like it would hurt anyone. It's a metal tipped crossbow bolt which has come over a set of stands - what do you think it's going to do if it hits you? Bounce off?

Indeed - pretty nuts.

Given that it was fired from outside the ground into the square... presumably unsighted... its a pretty good shot too.

Or a really bad one. I got one of Igor's nerf arrows stuck in our oak tree yesterday too.

So, Ben Stokes...

Once upon a time, intervening to stop someone being bottled would be seen as a heroic act... :yeahright:

Not to mention alledgedly intervening to stop homophobic abuse.

I’m not sure what’s going on with that.

The continuing to punch the guy after intervening is perhaps the issue

I haven't seen the video but it apparently doesn't look good.

I guess the question there is whether you think someone who is prepared to use a bottle as a weapon will walk away quietly if disarmed? I'll put it out there, I don't think I'd be turning my back on them...

Not turning your back possibly not the same as walking forward with fists swinging
