Sunderland striker Nicklas Bendtner was arrested following an early morning brawl at a hotel, it emerged today.

The Danish 23-year-old was one of two men detained by police after the incident at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Hotel in the autumn.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "At 2.18am on Tuesday September 13, police received a report of a fight at the Hilton hotel in Gateshead.

"Officers attended and two men aged 23 were arrested to prevent a continued breach of the peace. After investigation, both men were released without a charge."

Bendtner, who is on loan from Arsenal, is on bail after being arrested on suspicion of criminal damage last month.
