United striker arrested

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving. The former England under-21 player was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday morning and did not take part in the club's Carling Cup tie with Watford that evening due to a foot injury.

Cole, 24, took a road-side breath test and was then taken to a nearby police station. He was then bailed and he must now answer bail at a London police station in November. The former Chelsea striker has made over 60 appearances since joining in 2006.

Ah Carlton you muppet. I hate seeing this. Players like this are suppose to role models for the younger generation of footballers and things like this don't really help.
