Surprise! Some footballers are dumb. Last night, Sunderland players Nicklas Bendtner and Lee Cattermole were arrested by police on suspicion of criminal property damage. On Dec. 6, there were some cars damaged in Newcastle city center. After an investigation, the police apparently think Bendtner and Cattermole have something to do with it. Here are the quotes from the police, regarding the arrests, via the BBC.â†µ
"It follows an investigation into cars damaged on Stowell Street in Newcastle city centre which happened about 10pm on 6 December...The two men have been bailed."â†µ
There's no information yet on whether or not the pair will face charges or how many cars were damaged. But, since they're out of jail on bail, they'll probably be available to play Tottenham Hotspur this weekend! New manager Martin O'Neill might want to sit these guys down to show that he's not going to tolerate anything like this in the future, but he will probably avoid doing so on account of not having any good players to replace them.
