Man Utd captain is pictured in custody after arrest for 'punching a police officer' in bar brawl

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was pictured in custody today arriving at Greek police station ahead of a second night behind bars after allegedly attacking police officers on a raucous night out.

The £85million England international was allegedly involved in a bust-up with a group of other Englishmen before becoming 'very abusive and aggressive' towards officers who arrived to intervene on the island of Mykonos.

Maguire, 27, spent the night in a cell along with two other men thought to be fellow players aged 28 and 29, and the trio are expected to appear before a state prosecutor on the nearby island of Syros tomorrow. 

The men were transferred to the island to the west of Mykonos today and the footballer was seen getting out of a car surrounded by plain-clothes officers leading him into the police station. 

The prosecutor told local media that Maguire will make an apology tomorrow. 

Maguire, who rakes in £190,000-a-week, is alleged to have punched an officer and then attempted to bribe policemen.

The men have been charged with aggravated assault. Two of the officers suffered facial injuries during the scrap after they were allegedly hurled to the ground, punched and kicked. 

Maguire was yesterday pictured drinking at a pool party at SantAnna Bar with fellow United youngsters Marcus Rashford, 22, and Brandon Williams, 19, as well as Love Island star Chris Hughes, 27, and snooker player Judd Trump, 31 and his brother Joe Maguire. It is not clear if anybody at this party was with Maguire later that evening.
