City Star Arrested
Manchester City starlet Michael Johnson has been arrested following allegations that he was involved in a confrontation with a Manchester United fan in a nightclub last December.
The MUEN claims that the 22-year-old United supporter was headbutted, before being knocked to the floor and kicked. The 'victim' was said to be singing United songs before approaching Johnson prior to the incident.
Johnson was reportedly arrested on suspicion of assault causing actual bodily harm and has been bailed until March 18th.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police stated: 'Just after 1am on Sunday 6th December 2009, a patrol car was flagged down and an officer was told a man had been assaulted.
'The 22-year-old reported that he had been assaulted in 42nd Street nightclub.
'He had a cut to the face but no other injuries.
'A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and remains on police bail as inquiries continue.'
Johnson, tipped for great things after coming through the ranks at the City's world renound academy, has been out of action since rupturing his knee ligaments on December 10 2009.
