Wales and Cardiff City striker Craig Bellamy has been arrested by police investigating an alleged assault in Cardiff city centre.
The incident happened in Caroline Street in the early hours of Sunday morning.
South Wales Police said two men, aged 20 and 26, sustained facial injuries which did not require hospital treatment at the time.
Mr Bellamy, 31, has been bailed pending further inquiries.
Cardiff City FC said it would be inappropriate to comment but the striker, who is on loan with the Bluebirds from Premier League high-flyers Manchester City, would be in the squad for the Championship game at Norwich City on Saturday.
The former Liverpool and Celtic player was not involved in Cardiff’s FA Cup third-round tie at Stoke last Saturday.
Police have not named Mr Bellamy but in a statement confirmed a 31-year-old man had been arrested. (BBC Sport)
We all know that Craig Bellamy has a good side, for instance he does a lot of work for charity via his Foundation, however it can not be denied that the Welsh international likes a bit of scrap as well. Of course we don’t know the circumstances of the alleged assault but we can bet that the tigerish attacker gave as good as he got.
Could this have a negative effect on Cardiff City’s promotion push?
