Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been arrested and cautioned after an argument with police over his dog.
Newspaper reports claim police went to his London home to put the dog into quarantine, concerned that it had been taken abroad and back without the required jabs.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said officers went to an address in central London at 7.45pm with an officer from the Animal Health and Welfare Service.
The Sun claims police wanted to put the dog into quarantine, for alleged offences under the Animal Health Act of 1981 and the Rabies Order Act of 1974.
It said Mourinho refused to let the official take the dog and was arrested at around 10 p.m. after arguing with police.
Mourinho had been at Chelsea’s player of the year awards and returned home when he was contacted by his wife Tami.
Police left without recovering the dog, which the Sun said was now on the loose.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of obstructing police.
“He subsequently received a caution for obstructing police.”
