Best Arrested On Suspicion Of Sexual Assault On Girl

British soccer legend GEORGE BEST has been arrested and bailed over allegations he sexually assaulted a girl "under the age of 13" last month (MAY05) in Surrey, England.

The 59-year-old, who is fighting a well-publicised and ongoing battle with alcoholism, was questioned at Staines police station on the outskirts of London for nine hours last Thursday (09JUN05).

Best is due back at the police station on 6 July for further questioning.

The girl he is accused of molesting has also been interviewed by detectives.

A police spokesman says, "We've received an allegation of indecent assault against a 59-year-old man who was arrested on 9 June (05).

"The allegations concern a girl under the age of 13 and is said to have taken place in May (05). We're not prepared to discuss any further details."

MANCHESTER UNITED and NORTHERN IRELAND ace Best was also quizzed over claims he assaulted 34-year-old VICKI POPE in a separate incident, as she attempted to prevent him from seeing ex-girlfriend GINA DeVIVO.

And, just three days earlier (06JUN05), Best was attacked by his lover ROS HOLLIDGE, who hit him with a vase after the fallen soccer idol arrived at her home in Surbiton, Surrey drunk following an all-day drinking session.

Police arrested and cautioned Hollidge over the assault, which left Best with a black eye and requiring hospital treatment.
