UK soldiers admit role in bar fight
Four British soldiers have admitted being involved in a fight with an off-duty policeman outside a New York City bar.
The soldiers were on a military rugby team trip when the row broke out on August 30.
Criminal complaints say the officer was punched and his mobile phone was taken, the Associated Police reported.
Court records show Ratu-losefo Yavala yesterday pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and petit larceny, while Thomas Shute admitted misdemeanor assault.
Mosese Kurulala and Iliakini Raderua pleaded guilty to violations, which are not crimes under US law.
The four were sentenced to community service and fines.
The Ministry of Defence has been contacted for comment.
