The Norwich City fan who threw a mobile phone onto the pitch during a match at Carrow Road has avoided further police punishment.
An unnamed supporter was arrested during the Canaries' home match against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, December 28, after referee Kevin Friend found and removed a phone from the pitch towards the end of the first half.

The fan was identified and removed from the stadium at half-time, and has since been handed a three-year ban from attending games at the stadium by the club.
He has escaped further legal punishment, though, after Norfolk Police confirmed that the man arrested has since been released with no further action.
The incident comes three months after two Canaries fans were also banned from the stadium for three years after an 'altercation' in the Upper Barclay Stand during the historic 3-2 victory over Manchester City on September 14.
