He was also charged with possession of a Class A drug.

Bent denied the charges of the possession of a bladed article and affray but admitted the drugs charge.

He appeared at the same court in January 2016 where he changed his plea and admitted to the charge of affray.

In February 2016 Bent was given a 12-month suspended jail sentence with 200 hours of community service and a two-month night-time curfew after he admitted to affray and possession at previous hearings.

He also had to pay each of the officers £500 in compensation and cover £1,500 court fees.

Marcus Bent was back in the news in June 2016 when he was fined for possessing cocaine at the UK theme park Chessington World of Adventures.

Already on a suspended sentence, Bent was fined £385 with £85 costs.

In September 2017 Bent made a return to playing football when he signed for Southern Combination side Wick.

He joined the non-league minnows as a favour to his good friend and chairman of the club Rodney Lampton who he grew up with in Hammersmith.
