Nicklas Bendter’s loan spell at Sunderland has hardly been a raging success thus far. And now the Danish striker has blotted his copybook even further by being arrested close to St James’ Park The Sports Direct Arena Newcastle Stadium Thing.
And no, it’s not for ‘impersonation of a Premier League striker’, but it apparently Nick and Lee Cattermole were questioned by police after cars were damaged on Tuesday night. A spokesperson for Northumbria Police said: “Police can confirm that on Thursday, December 15, two men aged 23 were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.
“It follows an investigation in to damage caused to cars on Stowell Street in Newcastle city centre, which happened at about 10pm on Tuesday, December 6.”
The two Sunderland stars were quizzed on suspicion of causing criminal damage before being released on bail.
Bendtner complained about not being given enough first team football at Arsenal and while he might have had a point to a certain extent, he’s hardly doing much to to prove Arsene Wenger wrong.
Maybe a night in the cells might be the wake up call he needs as he’s in danger of wasting his career because of the kind of behaviour you’d usually associate with England internationals who play for Chelsea.
However, you have to question the judgement of a man who would hang around with someone like Cattermole who was probably just trying to get into a taxi but arrived just a couple of seconds late.
