Marlon King: Arrested by City of London Police officers

Marlon King has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run incident which left a man with a head injury.

The Birmingham City striker was held on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision following the crash in central London in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Police and ambulance crews were called to Bishops Bridge Road at the junction with Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, following reports that a car had hit a pedestrian.

A man in his late 40s was taken to a central London hospital, although his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

King, 33, was arrested by City of London Police officers and has been released on police bail to a date in mid-September.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: "A 33-year-old man was arrested by officers from City of London Police on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision and taken to a central London police station.

"He has been bailed to mid-September pending further inquiries. Detectives from Westminster are investigating."

A spokesman for Birmingham City said the club was aware of the incident.

King, whose previous clubs include Watford, Middlesbrough and Coventry City, is reportedly available on a free transfer and in talks with other Championship clubs about a possible move.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
