Magpies Player Arrested

Newcastle United footballer Nile Ranger has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The 20-year-old striker 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.
