Defender questioned on suspicion of causing ABH

Tottenham defender Ledley King was bailed on Sunday after being arrested on suspicion of assault outside a nightclub, police said. The Spurs centre-back was questioned on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm to another man at the alleged incident in Soho, Central London, in the early hours of the morning. Police confirmed a 28-year-old man was arrested earlier and had been bailed to a later date. Speaking outside Charring Cross Police Station in central London, Inspector Phil Clare said: "I can confirm, in the early hours of this morning, a man was arrested on suspicion of assault. "He has been interviewed at this police station and as a result of what he's told us we've bailed him to come back at a later date." The victim is understood to have refused medical treatment following the alleged incident involving the 28-year-old defender outside Punk nightclub in Soho Street. King, who joined Spurs in 1998, played in a Premier League game yesterday which saw his team draw 0-0 against Everton. A statement from Tottenham read: "The club is aware of an incident involving Ledley King in the early hours of Sunday morning. "We await details and information and it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time."
