Nicklas Bendtner arrested after hotel brawl
Thursday 05 January 2012
Sunderland striker Nicklas Bendtner was arrested following an early morning brawl at a hotel, it emerged today.
The Danish 23-year-old was one of two men detained by police after the incident at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Hotel in the autumn.
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "At 2.18am on Tuesday September 13, police received a report of a fight at the Hilton hotel in Gateshead.
"Officers attended and two men aged 23 were arrested to prevent a continued breach of the peace. After investigation, both men were released without a charge."
Bendtner, who is on loan from Arsenal, is on bail after being arrested on suspicion of criminal damage last month.
Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole was also arrested in the December incident.
The teammates were detained on December 15 after a police investigation into damage caused to cars parked on Stowell Street in Newcastle city centre around 10pm on December 6.
Both men were bailed pending further inquiries.
Bendtner played for his country in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, scoring against Cameroon.
Sunderland Association Football Club said it would not be commenting on his September arrest.
