This is really quite tragic.
Paul Gascoigne arrested one day after being warned he faces prison
Paul Gascoigne has been arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs one day after being warned he could face prison for drink-driving.
The former England footballer spent last night in custody on suspicion of possessing a class A substance after a raid at a house in North Tyneside.
A Northumbria Police spokesman confirmed that a 43 year-old man had been arrested on possession charges along with another man who was arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs.
Gascoigne has battled alcoholism for several years and earlier this year attended rehab to fight his addiction.
The 43 year old was told by magistrates in Newcastle on Wednesday that he could face up to three months in jail, in addition to a driving ban, after being caught driving while four times over the alcohol limit.
The footballer has another drink-driving hearing pending on November 3, a charge which he denies. (Telegraph)
It seems there is only one way Paul Gascoigne’s life is heading. To be caught on a drug possession charge 24 hours after being warned of a possible custodial sentence for a drink driving charge is almost like one screwed up cry for help. For so long now we have watched as Gazza’s fall from grace continued unabated and it really doesn’t look like his life story will end with anything other than a truly tragic end.
