Cole escapes charge over shooting
Police have dropped their investigation into Ashley Cole's accidental shooting of a Chelsea intern at the club's training ground, according to reports.
Cole allegedly shot student Tom Cowan with an air rifle on February 20 and Surrey police visited the Cobham facilities and interviewed club staff to get to the bottom of the matter last week.
Chelsea claim Cole, 30, has been punished by the club internally but he has not been suspended from playing since the incident was first reported by a British newspaper at the turn of the month.
Cowan did not press charges and left-back Cole has escaped a police charge, according to reports in the British press.
Cole has been an ever-present for champions Chelsea this season and has continued to play every minute while the incident was being investigated.
