Police in the UK have formally questioned Liam Gallagher over an alleged assault on his girlfriend, Debbie Gwyther, that was caught on CCTV at an upmarket restaurant in London.
UK newspaper The Sun obtained and published the footage which appears to show Gallagher grabbing the throat of Gwyther at the famed Chiltern Firehouse on August 9th.
At the time, The Sun chose to straight-up publish the the footage with an accompanying article that claimed Gallagher had “completely lost it” during an argument with Gwyther, after which he called her a “witch,” grabbed her by the throat and pushed her backwards.
Following the publishing of the article, both Gallagher and Gwyther made social media posts dispelling the report, with Gwyther’s in particular curiously being published in a similar tone-of-voice to Gallagher’s usual social media posting.
Firstly I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner Secondly there is only 1 witch and we all know who that is as you were LG x

Metropolitan Police in the UK have since confirmed the CCTV footage was passed on to them and an investigation was opened. A man, believed to be Gallagher, attended a police station in September to assist with police enquiries before being allowed to leave without charge.
A statement from Police confirmed that while the investigation remains open, no specific allegations have been filed at this stage.
Officers are aware of footage of an incident consistent with assault believed to have taken place in August 2018. The footage has been assessed and inquiries will be made into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident.
On Wednesday, 25 September a man attended a central London police station where he was interviewed under caution.
No specific allegations have been received at this time.
The 46-year-old Gallagher and 34-year-old Gwyther have been dating since at least 2013. Neither have commented on the police investigation as of yet.
