Former Manchester United and France star Eric Cantona was arrested in London on Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of assault. Police were called to the scene of the alleged crime after being notified of a potential assault, though there aren't currently any other details about the incident available to the public.
"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."
There is currently no information about whether or not the victim will press charges.
The now-47-years-old Cantona was one of the best players in the Premier League during his run with Manchester United, becoming a legend at the club. However, he is best known to those who did not follow the league closely at that time for something entirely different. In 1995, he ran into the stands and kicked Crystal Palace fan Matthew Simmons during a game, for which he was subsequently convicted of assault.
