Player held in drink-drive inquiry

Premier League footballer Nile Ranger has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, sources have said.

The 20-year-old Newcastle striker player was bailed pending the results of a blood test after he was stopped by police.

A fortnight ago the London-born player was arrested on suspicion of assault after a 33-year-old was found unconscious outside a pub in Newcastle city centre. He was bailed later.

Ranger has been linked to a number of clubs after falling out of favour with Newcastle bosses.

In May he issued an apology after he was photographed striking a gangster pose with a replica handgun.

On Friday he posted pictures of his black and white customised Range Rover on his Twitter account.

It features the word "Ranger" on the bonnet in official Range Rover lettering.
