Tottenham star arrested after racist rant and assault
Ledley King is no stranger to the art of drinking too much and starting a fight , but he massively improved on his own impressive inebriation benchmark on a visit to London’s Punk club on Saturday night. While demanding entry to the Soho nightspot, the classy Tottenham star dished out some racism and violence, which led to a night in the cells. The Sun say:
The Tottenham captain, who had been out in the West End following his team’s 0-0 draw with Everton, spent the night in a sparse cell in a police station.
[Bouncer] Wahib said: “He was so drunk we told him to come back when he was more sober.
“He walked across the road, opened his trousers and urinated all over the pavement in front of everybody. He came back and was so close to my face I could feel his spit on me.
“He started shouting, ‘Do you not know who I am?’ and bragging how much he earned.
“We tried to calm him down, but he called me a ‘f***ing Paki ****’ and also called me fat.
“He also called my manager a ‘balding white ****’. That’s two racist insults in one go.
“As I turned he punched me in the face. I was in a lot of pain and my face was all bruised and my teeth are very, very sore.
King has since issued an apology on the official Tottenham site, in which he claims the incident is “totally out of character”.
