Sad news, doesn't sound 'serious', but it seems he still can't adjust to 'normal' life
Paul Gascoigne charged with sex assault on Durham train
Football legend Paul Gascoigne has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman on a train from York to Durham. The former England midfielder was arrested at Durham station on 20 August. British Transport Police said the 51-year-old has now been charged with one count of sexual assault by touching and will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court on 11 December.
Mr Gascoigne shot to international fame during the 1990 World Cup. After leaving his hometown club Newcastle United in 1988, he enjoyed success at Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio and Rangers.
He has had a well-documented struggle with alcoholism in the past.
A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said Mr Gascoigne, of Leicester, was "charged via postal requisition with one count of sexual assault by touching, contrary to Section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003. The charge relates to an incident on board a train on 20 August this year," she added.

As you say, very sad
Still think it would have been a fitting way for him to have gone if Raoul Moat had shot him when he turned up bladdered to that police stand off.
He will never recover fully. All about damage limitation.
This has nout to do with his alcoholism, many alcoholics manage to function in society without being sex pests.
