Former England international Trevor Sinclair has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer after being held for allegedly drink-driving.
Lancashire Police said the 44-year-old had been released under investigation pending further inquiries.
The TV pundit, who played for Manchester City, West Ham and Blackpool, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, common assault and criminal damage on Sunday after a woman suffered minor injuries when she was hit by a car.
He was further arrested on Monday afternoon on suspicion of a public order offence and assaulting a police officer.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said the force was called to a disturbance at a house on Victory Boulevard in Lytham at 8.45pm on Sunday.
He said: "Officers attended the property and found a man had already left the property in his car, a Tesla X60D.
"A short time later officers found the vehicle which had been involved in a collision with a woman pedestrian on Clifton Drive. She received minor injuries."
A post on Sinclair's Twitter account on Sunday evening said: "Racist old bill all over the Sinclair residence again tonight. Thank god as a black man I've not fallen asleep again."
The post was later deleted.
