ENGLAND star Danny Rose left a police custody centre with a bandaged leg after spending 19 hours banged up.
The Sun revealed on Christmas Eve how the 30-year-old Spurs defender was arrested at 4am on Wednesday for dangerous driving after smashing up his car in a suspected high speed crash.
He was taken to a custody suite at Northamptonshire Criminal Justice Centre and received treatment for his injured right leg.
The £70,000 a week Premier League star was later ruled fit by a force medical examiner to be interviewed by police.
He was eventually released by police under investigation at 11pm that day, having spent 19 hours in custody at the Northampton custody centre.
Rose emerged from the building wearing shorts and with his right leg bandaged in two places.
He walked to a black Range Rover driven by an attractive blonde before being whisked away.
The police investigation into Rose is now focusing on how his car – believed to be a top of the range Audi – came to be severely damaged.
One sources told The Sun the vehicle only had three wheels and its back bumper was hanging off when Rose was arrested on the A45 in Northampton.
The spot where Rose was held is close to the M1 Motorway, which he regularly travels from London to see his family in Doncaster, South Yorks.
CCTV from the M1and nearby roads is being analysed to establish where the car being driven by Rose was in collision.
A source said: “He is suspected of hitting a central reservation while driving at high speed. The damage to the car was extensive.”
The source said Rose was breathalysed but his sample showed only a small amount of alcohol in his system and he was well under the drink drive limit.
Northamptonshire Police have declined to comment on whether he was asked to provide a routine blood sample to establish whether any drugs were in his system.
As he has not been charged with any offences, police have not identified Rose as the arrested driver.
A Northamptonshire Police spokesperson said: “We can confirm a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving on the A45 in Northampton shortly after 4am on Wednesday, December 23. The 30-year-old has been released under investigation.”
Rose has been out of favour at Spurs for two seasons and has yet to play for the first team this season.
His shirt number – three – was taken off him at the beginning of the season.
Rose is said to have a difficult relationship with Spurs manager Jose Mourinho, who has been keen to off-load him.
The tension in their relationship was highlighted in a Prime Amazon fly on the wall documentary about the club, in which Rose was filmed confronting Mourinho about not playing regularly.
Rose is one of the Premier League’s most outspoken players and has won plaudits for being vociferous about highlighting racism in the sport.
He has also previously spoken about his battle with mental illness.
Before the 2018 World Cup, Rose said he was on medication for months following a family tragedy, racist abuse suffered by his mum and a long-term knee injury.
