Spurs star arrested after two women claim threats were made.
Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has been arrested during an investigation into death threats aimed at two women after jewellery and clothing worth £200,000 disappeared from the 30-year-old’s home, reports the Daily Mail.
The footabller’s belongings went missing when two of his cousins invited the women to a party at Defoe’s Hertfordshire mansion – in the homeowner’s absence.
When Defoe returned home to find his possessions missing, he reportedly told his cousins to retrieve them and the women consequently claim they were threatened – although not by Defoe or his cousins.
The £60,000 per week Spurs star was released without charge after being questioned by detectives.
Defoe recently won a three-year legal battle with police after being wrongly held in a cell for five hours, after he was arrested by officers who incorrectly believed he was serving a driving ban.
The England international is enjoying a decent season with high-flying Spurs but is currently injured after suffering a twisted ankle in last week’s 1-0 win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.
