Premier League footballer Nicklas Bendtner has been arrested over criminal damage at his luxury apartment block.

The 25-year-old Arsenal striker was held by police in Hertfordshire in connection with damage to an apartment building where he lives in the Bushey area. Police said Bendtner (right) has been cautioned – meaning he will not have to attend court.

Hertfordshire Police said: "A 25-year-old man from Bushey has been cautioned for criminal damage and is no longer in custody.

"He was arrested in connection with an incident which occurred at an address in The Avenue, Bushey, in the early hours of November 24."

The Danish international, a bit-part player with the current Premier League leaders, has scored 45 goals for the Gunners in 164 appearances
