Liberal Democrat MP Mike Hancock has been arrested on suspicion of indecent assault following allegations of improper behaviour toward a female constituent.
In a statement on his website, the 64-year-old Portsmouth South MP said he went voluntarily to a police station last night and "co-operated fully" with official inquiries.
He was released on police bail until January 10.
Mr Hancock declined to comment on the case details last night.
