…Harry Maguire was arrested in Mykonos last night following an altercation outside a bar and his now assisting Greek police with their enquiries
Harry Maguire has been pictured arriving at court following his arrest in Mykonos last night after ‘punching and kicking’ police officers, Greek police have confirmed.
The Manchester United captain was detained along with two other men after an altercation outside a bar in the early hours of the morning on the Greek island.
And on Friday he was transferred to Syros island where he was snapped heading into court as police confirmed the extent of the altercation.
Greek police confirmed on Friday the captain, 27, was “verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him” after the trio rounded on cops.
Spokesman Petros Vassilakis added: “All of the three were arrested but during the effort to do so, the other two, including the football player, got violent also.
“They threw down at least two policemen, hit them with their fists and kicked them.
“I can’t tell you what they were telling us. All English swear words against the authorities and against the work of the police.”
United issued a statement on Friday morning which read: “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.
“Contact has been made with Harry and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities. At this time we will be making no further comment.”
