Eric Cantona arrested for assault

Former Manchester United icon and legend Eric Cantona has been arrested and cautioned for common assault following an incident in North London on Wednesday lunchtime. The 47-year old, who graced the Old Trafford turf for five years, had an eventful career which now looks to be carrying on into retirement.

He infamously kung-fu kicked a Crystal Palace fan in the 94-95 season, and recently that caused drama amongst Palace fans as United supporters decided to wear King Eric masks to the game at selhurst Park a fortnight ago.

It is unknown exactly how the incident occurred, and the chances are that Eric has reacted badly to a fan of another club sending him abuse are quite high, you’d imagine.

A spokeswoman said:

“Police were called to Regents Park Road, NW1, at 12.55pm on Wednesday 12th March, following reports of an assault. Officers from Camden Borough attended and a man in his mid-40s was arrested on suspicion of common assault,”

“He was taken into custody and subsequently cautioned for common assault. The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene.”
