The Arsenal fan accused of trying to headbutt Roy Keane is a senior manager at a major housebuilding company who lives in Essex with his beauty therapist wife, MailOnline can reveal. 

Scott Law, a 42-year-old father of two, is a technical director at Countryside Partnerships, which builds homes and carries out regeneration projects. 

The Arsenal season ticket holder lives with his wife, a beauty therapist and blogger, in a £400,000 three-bedroom house in Waltham Abbey, Essex. 

He was earlier named by The Sun as the man who clashed with Keane in a hospitality area at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The 42-year-old father of two is said to have broken his nose after launching himself at the former Man Utd player, 52, as he cheered winger Alejandro Garnacho’s 89th minute goal.

Former England right-back Micah Richards then sought to ‘defuse’ the situation by pinning the man up against the wall. Garnacho’s goal was later disallowed. 

Describing the lead-up to the incident, one source is reported to have said: ‘Keane was giving it to the Arsenal fans when United scored, and it wound some up. He seemed to be provoking them.

‘Scott went to the concourse, saw him and headbutted him but he only hit his shoulder and did more damage to himself. He broke his nose and Keane didn’t seem to be hurt at all, just a bit shaken up.’

Friends of Law are said to have claimed that Keane had been hurling abuse at fans from the punditry studio, leaving Law fuming. 

He then allegedly assaulted the former midfielder as he made his way down to the pitch to give his analysis of Arsenal’s 3-1 win.

The Met police confirmed a 42-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of assault.

He is said to have missed, instead hitting the Irishman’s shoulder, with his nose breaking on impact.

The face-off is said to have left blood spattered on the floor of the hospitality area where the men were gathered.

Describing the aftermath of the incident, a witness said: ‘Afterwards, we noticed a small amount of blood on the floor.’ 

Footage was posted on social media of former Manchester City defender Micah Richards, who also works as a pundit for Sky, pinning a man against a wall moments after the alleged assault

Keane was reportedly left ‘shaken’ and was heard asking stewards to call the police before Law left. 

The incident happened shortly after winger Alejandro Garnacho had looked to have won the contest for United in the 88th minute, before it was disallowed after a VAR check.

Former England player Richards has since addressed the incident on The Rest Is Football podcast with Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.

He said: ‘Gary, I’m not allowed to talk about it. But when I’m allowed to talk about it, the Rest is Football will get it first.’

Shearer laughed off the incident, replying: ‘I think the common opinion is ‘don’t f*** with big Meeks’.’

The Metropolitan Police refused to name anyone involved in the incident, but released a statement that said: ‘Police are investigating an incident at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, September 3, during which a man was assaulted.

‘On Monday, September 4, a 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault (ABH).

‘The man was taken into police custody before being released on bail until a date in late September. Inquiries are ongoing.’

Sky said the alleged assault by a member of the public preceded the footage that was circulating on social media.

‘In the footage seen, Micah Richards was acting to defuse a situation,’ Sky said.  

Countryside declined to comment.
