Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been arrested for attacking police officers after being involved in an altercation on the Greek island of Mykonos.

As per reports, the incident got started after the 27-year-old England international allegedly got into an argument with two other Englishmen, after which he became 'very abusive and aggressive' towards officers who arrived at the scene to intervene.

As per police reports, the brawl broke out outside Mykonos' Fabrica bar in the wee hours of Friday morning, and two other men along with Maguire began abusing the officers.

"When the brawl was all sorted out, one of the two groups - with the football players - started verbally abusing officers. There were several policemen there. At some point, one of the three members of the group - they were aged 27, 28, and 29 - threw a swing at one of the policemen and a fight ensued," said a local police spokesman.

"All of the three were arrested but during the effort to do so, the other two, including the football player, got violent also. They threw down at least two policemen, hit them with their fists and kicked them.

"I can't tell you what they were telling us. All English swear words against the authorities and against the work of the police."

Maguire, along with the two other men, is being held in custody, locked up in a Mykonos cell and are scheduled to appear before a state prosecutor on the island of Syros later today to be charged with aggravated assault.

On Thursday, Maguire was pictured at a pool party with fellow Red Devils Marcus Rashford and Brandon Williams, along with Love Island star Chris Hughes and snooker player Judd Trump.
