ARREST: Titus Bramble

PREMIER LEAGUE footballer Titus Bramble has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a class A drug, a police spokesman has confirmed.

The Sunderland defender, whose brother, Tesfaye, was jailed four and a half years last month after being convicted of rape, was being held by Cleveland Police following an incident in the early hours.

The spokeswoman said: "A 30-year-old man from Wynyard has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a class A drug.

"He is currently being questioned by police and inquiries are ongoing."

Bramble’s football club said it was making inquiries but would not make any further comment.

A Sunderland spokesman said: "The club is looking into this matter but due to ongoing police investigations is unable to comment further at this stage."
