Ryan Giggs arrested for assault
Ryan Giggs was questioned on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault. He was released on bail pending enquiries from Pendleton police station yesterday afternoon after hours of questioning, and was escorted away in a black Mercedes.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Police were called at 10.05pm on Sunday to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries but did not require any treatment. A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault.”
Sources said he had been living in the £1.7 million house which he bought for his mum Lynne on the same street as his £3.5million mansion which is currently on the market.
Giggs had been at Hotel Football, in Manchester, which he co-owns, earlier in the day to watch Man United’s 1-0 defeat against Arsenal. Following that, he is then believed to have gone to the Stock Exchange Hotel, which he also co-owns with former teammate Gary Neville, in the city centre.
The former footballer has been dating Kate Greville on and off since 2017 and Giggs went public with the relationship when the pair were pictured together on holiday in Italy in August 2018. The two met when she started doing the PR for Hotel Football in 2013 after moving from Dubai. They started dating eight months after his divorce from wife Stacey, whom he had been cheating on for eight years with brother Rhodri’s wife Natasha.
One of Ryan Giggs representatives made the following statement on the matter: “Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him. He is cooperating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations.”
