Jack Wilshere could potentially be in trouble with the police following a bust-up in Cafe de Paris, with the England international accused of assaulting a fellow patron and being ejected from the club, as reported by the Mirror.
Wilshere has only just returned to training following a lengthy spell on the sidelines, so hopefully this doesn’t cause any real problems. We’re hoping to see the 24-year-old back in action before the end of the campaign, but this could well get him in hot water with no only the law, but also Arsene Wenger.
Wilshere has been reprimanded for his off-field antics in the past, and if Wenger is unhappy with the midfielder’s behaviour then he may well impose sanctions.
He was booted from the club around 2am after becoming involved in an argument with another customer. He has been accused of striking the other man, with onlookers hearing the commotion as it poured into the street.
One bystander recounted the event, revealing exactly what happened before the police arrived on scene.
“Jack Wilshere came out of Cafe de Paris and stormed across the road. There was a lot of screaming and shouting between his pals and another group, it was complete chaos,” he said.

“Two of his mates ushered him down the street closely followed by two girls who appeared to be arguing.
“There were a few people shouting Jack’s name but he kept on walking away. He’s one of the most recognisable faces in English football so lot of people were aware it was him.
“Another man was accusing Jack of assaulting him, he was shouting and definitely trying to get a reaction from the Arsenal player.
“Suddenly around six police officers appeared out of nowhere and luckily split the two groups up, taking them down an alleyway littered with rubbish to speak to them.
“Jack was trying to hide his face with his friend’s jacket when he realised lots of people were looking at him.
“The police kept him there for about half an hour before one his pals got him a taxi and the police escorted him to the waiting cab.”
It doesn’t appear that Wilshere himself was particularly irate when he left Cafe de Paris, and he was quickly escorted away from the fracas. He firmly denies the assault accusations, and it may well just be someone looking for their 15 minutes of fame by pointing fingers at a footballer.
Arsenal transfer news
We really need Wilshere to get his career back on track, not only by curbing his behaviour but also by overcoming his injury problems. He’s dangerously close to wasting the massive amount of potential he’s been blessed with, and most Arsenal fans would be devastated if Wilshere were to sink into oblivion without making the impact we know he can.
