NICKLAS Bendtner and Lee Cattermole were quizzed by police in connection with a car-wrecking spree in Newcastle.

Police launched a probe after a spate of cars were attacked on Stowell Street just streets away from Newcastle’s St James’ Park.

Several cars are believed to have been damaged during the attack, which occurred at around 10pm on Tuesday, December 6.

And the Sunderland footballers, both 23, were arrested yesterday as officers questioned them over the attacks, before being bailed.

They were quizzed on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

Today a spokesman from Northumbria Police said: “Police can confirm that on Thursday, December 15, two men aged 23 were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.

“If follows an investigation in to damage caused to cars on Stowell Street in Newcastle city centre, which happened at about 10pm on Tuesday, December 6.”

The alleged damage – which is believed to have targeted at least three cars – happened just days after Sunderland lost 2-1 to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.

It is believed that officers are scouring CCTV and are still trying to establish how many cars were damaged in the attack.

Martin O’Neill will not be pleased and one might expect that neither player will be selected for the game against Tottenham on Sunderland.

It would appear that Nicklas Bendtner is developing a habit of drunken behaviour, we can at least assume that the attacks on these cars were in relation to a boozy night out, as the Dane was also filmed in a Copenhagen pizzeria demanding free pizza and uttering those fateful words ‘Do you know who I am’ when free pizza was not given to the former Arsenal man.
