Nottingham Forest could be charged by the FA after two away fans were arrested for shouting ‘Chelsea Rent Boy’

NOTTINGHAM Forest faces FA charges after two away fans were arrested for shouting ‘Chelsea Rent Boy’.

Chelsea were stunned by the visitors who took all three points thanks to Anthony Elanga’s well-placed result this afternoon.

But two Forest supporters were arrested at Stamford Bridge this afternoon because of obnoxious chanting.

They were thrown from Chelsea grounds before being taken away by Nottinghamshire Police officers, according to MailOnline.

The FA introduced new rules earlier this year that allow it to charge clubs whose fans use the offensive term ‘rent boy’.

The CPS has decided to classify the use of the phrase – which is a violation of FA Rule E21 – as a hate crime.

The Crown Prosecution Service has previously said those using the words must be prosecuted.

Chelsea fans are said to have complained to security staff about other incidents as well.

In such cases, charges are not automatically brought against the FA, the clarification can be left to the clubs involved and the police.

However, Forest fans’ previous use of the term in a game against Chelsea on New Year’s Day could work against them.

Wolves became the first club to be fined £100,000 by the FA for homophobic chanting in July.

The Prem side were fined after responding “insufficiently” to loan boy chants during their Premier League game against Cheslea in April.

The FA will await reports from the police before deciding whether to take formal disciplinary action against Forest.

The chants were aimed at Chelsea players on multiple pitches last season – in both the Premier League and FA Cup.
