Harry Maguire to appear in Greek court after hitting police officer. England defender arrested following an alleged fight on Thursday night.
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is due in court following his arrest on the island of Mykonos, Greek police have said. The England defender, 27, was arrested following an alleged fight on Thursday night, along with two other Britons, aged 28 and 29.
Police said there had been an altercation and an exchange of words with officers, and that the three men would appear before a prosecutor on the nearby island of Syros on Saturday.
A statement released by the Hellenic Police’s South Aegean region press office on Friday afternoon read: “Patrolling police officers in the area of Mykonos intervened and normalised a dispute between citizens.
“However, three foreigners involved in the incident turned against them, insulting and hitting a police officer with fists.
“The three foreigners were taken to the Mykonos Police Station, where upon their arrival they strongly resisted, pushing and beating three police officers.
“One of the detainees then tried to offer money so that the trial against them would not be completed. The arrested (men) were taken to the Syros Prosecutor’s Office.”
Maguire and the two other detainees were transported to Syros by ship, where they will face charges by a public prosecutor, the police official added.
