Arron Scholes, 19, is alleged to have carried out the shocking act at an unnamed pub in Oldham in June

The teenage son of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes 'laughed hysterically' as he beat up a man in a pub, a court has heard. 

Arron Scholes, 19, is alleged to have carried out the shocking act at an unnamed pub in Oldham in June. 

And is even said to have taken a photograph of the man's face during the attack and could now face up to six months in jail, The Sun reports. 

His father Paul, 44, mother Claire, and sister Alicia, 17, all accompanied the teenager to Tameside Magistrates' Court.

During his appearance, the alleged victim, Robert Kember, said he could not give full details due to the 'nature of the assault and effect on him.'

Scholes, of Greater Manchester, pleaded not guilty to the assault and will now stand trial on March 18. 

Earlier Scholes listened as prosecution lawyers outlined the allegations against him.

Prosecutor Andrea Griffiths told the JPs: 'I ask you to list this matter for trial. This matter involves an assault upon the complainant who was out drinking in the Upper Mill area on 18 June last year, so some time ago now.

'On that particular day, the complainant was assaulted by being repeatedly punched. The complainant is not able to give any particular detail due to the nature of the assault and the effect upon him.

'An eyewitness, the landlady, observed what she described as a lasting and continued assault where this defendant punched the complainant five or six times. Then he stopped and was described as laughing hysterically before taking a photo of his face then continuing. We are awaiting CCTV from the police.'

Scholes who lives with his family in a luxury property in the village of Grasscroft was wearing a a black suit, black jacket, a pale blue shirt and a darker blue tie and sat emotionless throughout the hearing. His father was wearing a navy blue coat, black jumper and white shirt. He was also emotionless.  

Defence solicitor Catherine Gaynor told the hearing: 'There will be a number of defence witnesses, namely three. The trial will last for a day and has the potential of going on to two days.'

Chair of the bench Gillian Pearson told Scholes: 'Mr Scholes, you have pleaded not guilty and this case is going to trial on 18th March back at this court, and you will need to be here for 9.30.

'Until that time, unconditional bail is granted to you. Should you fail to attend, the trial may go ahead in your absence.'

Last September the football legend turned out for his son's club for a league match against Stockport Georgians in the Manchester Premier League match when Royton found themselves short of players. He and Claire have another child Aiden now 13 who has autism.

In his autobiography Scholes: My Story, the former Red wrote of his family: 'For all the benefits that professional football has brought me, none of them would mean a thing to me without my family, my wife Claire, my sons Arron and Aiden, and my daughter Alicia. My new generation of Red Devils are our three kids who keep Claire and me extremely busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

'I know I'm bound to say this about my own children but we think they're brilliant and love them to bits. Arron and Alicia are fantastic with Aiden. It can't be easy having a brother in his situation but they cope with it brilliantly.'
