Callum Hudson-Odoi arrested
Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi was arrested after an issue with a woman during the early hours of Sunday morning.
Metropolitan Police officers attended reports of an incident at the England international’s apartment after being called by the woman in question. An ambulance also attended the scene.
The 19-year-old was arrested by officers and taken into police custody. A police spokesman said: ‘Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.’
The Met confirmed the woman was taken to hospital and a man, who was arrested at the scene, remained in police custody.
Police returned to Hudson-Odoi’s property on Sunday to continue their investigations into the matter.
The Sun report that Hudson-Odoi met the woman online and invited her to his home, sending a vehicle to collect her. Neighbours of the 19-year-old told The Sun that his acquaintance was ‘very glamorous’ before the property was ‘crawling with police’.
The news says that the Chelsea star is said to have asked the woman to arrive at his property wearing lingerie and that the pair exchanged flirtatious messages beforehand.
Chelsea were contacted by Sportsmail for comment, though news of Hudson-Odoi’s arrest had filtered back to players and staff at the Stamford Bridge club during Sunday afternoon.
Hudson-Odoi was one of the first footballers in the UK to confirm he had to be infected with the Covid-19 in March, but is due to return to group training by the end of the week provided his tests allow him to.
‘I had the virus which has cleared now. I fully feel good, I feel fit, so I am feeling back to myself so it is all good,’ he said at the start of April.
