London - Stoke City wing Jermaine Pennant has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in a nightclub, the Press Association reported on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has been bailed pending further inquiries into the incident in Manchester on Sunday, PA quoted sources as saying.

Two hours after the alleged attack, the player was involved in a car crash and charged with drink-driving, driving while disqualified and having no insurance.
