Former England and Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer after being held for allegedly drink driving. Sinclair was arrested on suspicion of drink driving, common assault and criminal damage on Sunday after a woman suffered minor injuries when she was hit by a car. He was later arrested on Monday on suspicion of a public order offence and assaulting a police officer. Sinclair, 44, has been released under investigation pending further inquiries.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said they attended a disturbance at a house on Victory Boulevard in Lytham at 8.45pm on Sunday. "Officers attended the property and found a man had already left the property in his car, a Tesla X60D," he said. "A short time later officers found the vehicle which had been involved in a collision with a woman pedestrian on Clifton Drive. She received minor injuries." Sinclair, who also played for West Ham, QPR and Cardiff, won 12 caps for England.
