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.”
