In some breaking news after the UK Open Qualifier today which Michael van Gerwen won, Adrian Lewis has been suspended by the Darts Regulation Authority pending a full investigation after an incident in his quarter-final game with the Spaniard, Jose Antonio Justicia Perales.
Both players had to be separated by stewards after Adrian Lewis had physical contact with the new tour card holder after the game. A game in which tensions were at a high in something never quite seen on the ProTour. This was seen with Lewis stopping him mid game and shouting at him and then the incident occurred after.
This will probably see Lewis’ out of the remaining UK Open Qualifiers this weekend and puts a dampner on a great day for ‘Jackpot’ who seemingly is back towards his top form again.
