Jamaica Under-23 representative, Kyle Butler, has reported his recent alleged altercation with father and Phoenix All Stars Football Academy manager Craig Butler to the police and retained the services of noted Queens Council (QC) Tom Tavares-Finson.

Last week, the 22-year-old made several cryptic posts to social media, claiming that he had suffered years of abuse from an unnamed party. In now-deleted photos posted to the footballer’s official social media account, he had also displayed a wound to his arm that he later claimed was received during an altercation with the senior Butler ahead of a training session in Mona.

Craig, in a release addressing the issue last week, vehemently denied both the allegations of assaulting his son on November 30, at the football field, or any other instances of past abuse. He retained an attorney last week. His son has now followed suit.

“Kyle Butler has given a statement to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) concerning this matter and will be exhausting all legal recourse possible as he instructs the watch and/or conduct of all related matters by myself, Mr Donahue Martin Jr and Mr Sean-Christopher Castle, his attorneys-at-law,” Tavares-Finson said in a statement.

Tavares-Finson also revealed that he would be able to speak on the issue in the coming days, but as it stood things were in the early stages.
