Avon and Somerset Police issue a warrant for the arrest of Yeovil Town Football Club Chairman Martin Hellier.

Avon and Somerset Police based in Portishead have issued a warrant to arrest Martin Hellier, the current Yeovil Town Football Club owner and Chairman.

The warrant was issued after the police investigated death threats by Hellier to a man, a Ukrainian woman and two children.

The warrant has been handed to the police in Yeovil to make the arrest.

It’s understood Hellier sent over 160 text messages that were threatening, racist and harassing whilst also leaving racist voicemails and making numerous nuisance calls.

Hellier, who recently invited ITV West Country News to Huish Park to claim he was being abused whilst denying making any death threats, claiming they were computer-generated, has also been reported to the Football Association of Somerset, who have escalated it to the FA Headquarters in London due to the severity of the situation and the club being in Step 2 of the football pyramid.

Discipline and associated cases at step 2 sit with the National FA.

What action will the FA take against Yeovil Town Football Club and its Chairman, Martin Hellier, by an FA panel currently reviewing all the facts is yet to be decided.
