The Ghana Police Service have arrested WBO Super Welterweight Boxer Patrick Allotey in connection with his battering and assault case against a football fan.
Allotey was captured on video mercilessly pummeling a jubilant Asante Kotoko fan at the Accra Sports Stadium during the Ghana Premier League super clash between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko last weekend.
Allotey, whose boxing license is on the line for his unprofessional conduct, is at risk of facing jail term if he is arraigned before court.
On Wednesday the police declared him wanted in the Ghanaian media and was eventually arrested on Thursday with social media reacting to the news of his arrest.

His arrest has also led some media practitioners to call on the police service to arrest the policeman who wrongly shot and destroyed one eye of a Kotoko fan at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
