Barton was travelling from London's King's Cross to Cambridge when he was pounced on by the ticket inspector.

The midfielder, previously jailed for his attack on a teenager in Liverpool last year, earns £64,000-a-week.

He admitted to an inspector he did not have a £30.60 ticket and was ordered to pay a £61.20 penalty fare.

A spokesman for the footballer said: "There was no question of Joey acting in an untoward manner. He did not have time to pay at the train station."
