Marcus Bent has pleaded guilty in court to cocaine possession but has denied charges of an affray and possessing a meat cleaver kitchen knife.
The 37-year-old former Everton, Ipswich and Charlton striker was up in court for an incident that happened on 13 September. The court heard that Bent was tasered by police in response to an incident in his house. Judge Roger Climie decided to adjourn the case until January.
Fun fact: Bent once won Premier League player of the month, back in 2002 shortly after he had moved to Ipswich for £3m. There you go. One for a pub quiz.
