Last updated : 09 January 2008 By Footy Mad - Editor

Barton is facing the battle of his life as he was arrested AGAIN in December and faces the prospect of five years inside if he fails in his court battle for an incident at Manchester City last year.

He is currently residing at the Sporting Chance Clinic in Hampshire after being released from prison, where he had been remanded after being charged with assault after a night out in Liverpool.

His next court appearance is in Liverpool on January 16.
