Monday 09 June 2014
Ashley Cole is to be questioned by Los Angeles police after he allegedly assaulted British television presenter and model Donatella Panayiotou.
“A battery report has been assigned to detectives from the Hollywood division,” a spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed.
Police received the complaint on 31 May and now have 30 days to investigate.
The Chelsea veteran reportedly threw champagne over Panayiotou at a Lure nightclub in Hollywood, telling her, “You know what this is for!” the Mirror reports.
The incident allegedly sparked a row which resembled “saloon bar brawl”, one witness said. The two were celebrating the birthday of basketball player Nick Young.
Other guests are said to have included rapper Drake and R&B singer Brandy.
Former England player Cole was left out of Roy Hodson’s World Cup squad and he has since retired from international football. His contract with Chelsea expires on 1 July, after spending eight years there.
He is currently on holiday in LA.
