Stoke star’s ‘drink-drive theft’ ar­rest

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

STOKE City foot­ball star Saido Ber­ahino has been charged with be­ing drunk in charge of a ve­hi­cle, po­lice said.

The 25-year-old ( above) was de­tained in Lon­don’s West End on Mon­day after re­ports of a “dis­tur­bance” in Great Rus­sell Street.

A spokes­woman for the Metropoli­tan Po­lice said the striker was ar­rested at 3am, taken into cus­tody and charged.

He is due to ap­pear at High­bury Cor­ner Mag­is­trates’ Court on March 6.

Scot­land Yard said of­fi­cers ar­riv­ing at the scene saw a car “drive away at speed”.

They added: “The car was stopped by po­lice in Bed­ford Square and a 25-year-old man was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of drink-driving.

“The sus­pect al­leged that a group of males sur­rounded his car in Great Rus­sell Street and at­tacked him, steal­ing his watch.”

Scot­land Yard said de­tec­tives were yet to make any ar­rests over that al­le­ga­tion but were con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate. IN seven US states you can change your vote after you’ve cast it.
