Still The Best

Irish football legend George Best was arrested today after an allegation of assault.

Best walked into Staines police station in Surrey at lunchtime to be interviewed about an allegation brought by Vicky Pope that he attacked her as she tried to stop him getting into his ex-lover Gina Devivo’s home in Ewell, Surrey, on Tuesday. It later emerged Best had been arrested and was being held in custody inside the police station.
A spokeswoman for Surrey Police said: "A 59-year-old man was today arrested by Surrey Police officers following an allegation of assault occasioning actual bodily harm against a 34-year-old woman."

"The offence is alleged to have taken place at an address in Ewell, Surrey, on June 7.

"The man is currently in custody at a Surrey police station."

Earlier today, Best’s agent Phil Hughes said the former footballer "categorically" denied any allegation of assault.

Ms Pope told the Daily Mirror Best had punched her in the neck as she attempted to stop him entering her friend Miss Devivo’s home.

She told the newspaper: "It was absolutely terrifying and totally shocking."


I smell bullshit on this one. Especially since Ms Pope runs to the Daily Mirror with her story which is hardly a bastion for truth and honesty, is it? The British love to bash George Best but we the people of Ireland look after our own and we respect our great son Goerge Best who was, is and will always be a true legend. Ireland will always adore you George. I think this story is garbage and I think George Best will once again rise above it.
