The former Man United midfielder has been bailed following the alleged incident

Former Manchester United footballer Nicky Butt has been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of assaulting a woman.

The arrest came during the time Manchester United officials were focussing on the team's trip to the Nou Camp, and were reportedly left scrambling to understand the nature and details surrounding the incident.

The arrest took place after reports that a woman was assaulted at a house on Broadway, Hale. His wife, Shelley, is former civilian police employee, a source said.

The woman received a small cut to her hand and did not require hospital treatment.

"A 44-year-old was arrested on suspicion of assault and has been bailed pending further inquiries".

The 44-year-old, who won six Premier League titles and a Champions League winners medal during his playing days at Old Trafford, is thought to have been arrested at his home in Hale on Tuesday afternoon.

"Inquiries are ongoing and anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting reference number 1086 of 16/04/19 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111".

United declined to comment, however, the news comes on a bad day for the famed Class of '92 - after fellow member Paul Scholes was charged by the Football Association with allegedly breaking their rules on betting.
