Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi was arrested this weekend after allegedly breaching lockdown regulations to meet with a model at his London home.
The teenage star is the latest name on a growing list of Premier League footballers accused of being in breach of England’s lockdown regulations, designed to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, but The Sun report that his arrest came after the model called the emergency services for the police and an ambulance in the early hours of the morning.
The Metropolitan Police said: “Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.”
They added that a woman was taken to hospital and a man was arrested at the scene, and remained in police custody.
The tabloid paper report that the meeting between the two ‘turned sour’ – with no further details provided – before the emergency services were called.
Hudson-Odoi is one of a handful of Premier League footballers who has tested positive for COVID-19 this year, the winger having his positive test result revealed by the club over two months ago.
A neighbour told The Sun that the woman had arrived at around 8pm on Saturday, describing the building as ‘crawling with police’ for much of Sunday.
Another added: “There are a couple of footballers in the building – but in the early hours of last night it all kicked off and the police were called.”
Chelsea have not yet made any public comment on the incident at time of writing.
