Demba Ba: Man arrested after racism allegation

A 39-year-old man from Gateshead was detained on suspicion of posting the offensive comments about the former Newcastle player.

He has been arrested on suspicion of racially-aggravated harassment and bailed pending further inquiries.

Ba, who joined Chelsea at the start of the transfer window, is likely to be back in the north-east this weekend as his new club is facing his old one at St James' Park.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "Police received a complaint about an offensive message posted on Facebook earlier this month.

"A 39-year-old Gateshead man has been arrested on suspicion of racially-aggravated harassment and has been bailed pending further inquiries."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
