Former Manchester United manager David Moyes was reported to police on suspicion of allegedly assaulting a 23-year-old man at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe late last night, according to ITV news.
Moyes was drinking at the Lancashire bar on Wednesday evening when the authorities were informed that an altercation had taken place, at around 10pm, with Lancashire police still investigating the incident to try an establish if an offence took place.
Lancashire Constabulary confirmed that they received a report that a 51-year-old man assaulted a 23-year-old at the bar, but no arrest has been with enquiries ongoing.
The short statement read: "Police are investigating a report of an assault at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe.
"Officers attended the bar at about 10pm yesterday (Wednesday, May 21st) and it was reported that a 23 year old local man had been assaulted by a 51-year-old man. He did not require hospital treatment.
"Inquiries are ongoing and we are speaking to a number of people to try to establish the circumstances.
"There are a number of differing accounts which we need to work through to try to establish exactly what has happened.
"No-one has been arrested at this stage."
Moyes is currently unemployed after 10 torturous months as United boss were brought to an abrupt end in April, but this latest return to the media spotlight will be unwelcome to the say the least.
The Scot has of course not been found guilty or even questioned in connection with the alleged offence at this stage, although Lancashire police are yet to compile a full report on what exactly took place at the Emporium.
