Alex Song May Face Jail Time

Alex Song

The 23-year-old was charged with malicious wounding after being accused of attacking a student while on holiday.

The alleged victim, Ludovic Achille Mouaha, told an initial hearing: “My girlfriend went to the bathroom but when she hadn’t come back after 15 minutes I went to see if something had happened.

“Two bodyguards blocked my way telling me I couldn’t use it because Alex Song was inside.

“He then came out and was visibly angry. I ended up in a drain and afterwards went to hospital.”

Song’s representatives told a court hearing he did not touch the student but he faces two years in prison if found guilty.

“The plaintiff later caused a scuffle and Alex’s bodyguards reacted. But at no time did Alex lay a hand on the plaintiff.”

Song has not been arrested and does not have to appear at the court hearing.
