The Guardian is reporting that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has been arrested and cautioned after assault in London.

A police statement confirmed the incident:

“Police were called to Regents Park Road, NW1, at 12.55pm on Wednesday 12th March, following reports of an assault. Officers from Camden Borough attended and a man in his mid-40s was arrested on suspicion of common assault.

“He was taken into custody and subsequently cautioned for common assault. The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene.”

In 1995, the French international was banned for eight months by the Football Association after kung-fu kicking a Crystal Palace fan who allegedly told Cantona: “F*** off back to France, you French motherf*****”

Since then Cantona has led an interesting life as an artist and actor. In 2011 he was named Director of Soccer by NASL side New York Cosmos.

    I love the grunge-rock of 1991. Absolutely amazing, Nirvana will be known to my descendants, whether they want it to be or not. LOL. Most people didn’t know that pic was the actual Kurt Cobain. *Laughs cuz she’s listening to Come As You Are ..
