Liverpool, England:

England midfielder Steven Gerrard has been found not guilty of affray after being accused of attacking a man in a bar in a dispute over playing music.

The jury at Liverpool Crown Court delivered its verdict on Friday, accepting Gerrard's explanation that he acted in self defense in punching businessman Marcus McGee at the Lounge Inn bar on Dec. 29.

The Liverpool captain admitted he threw punches at McGee, but told the court he mistakenly believed he was about to be struck.
