POLICE will be taking no further action against Amir Khan after he was arrested on suspicion of two assaults.

The 27-year-old boxer was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning after an incident in Russell Street, Heaton, in which two teenagers, both aged 19, were said to be injured.

Amir spent hours in custody before being released on bail.

After being released from custody Amir tweeted: “It's all nonsense. Please don't believe what you read. I'm home with my family and nobody got beat up.”

A spokesman for GMP said a decision had been made to take no further action against a 27-year-old arrested on suspicion of two section 47 assaults (actual bodily harm).

A spokesman for Amir said: “Amir Khan was arrested during the early hours of Friday 4th July on suspicion of common assault against two youths.

"Shortly thereafter he was released on police bail pending further enquiries.

“This was a minor incident involving a misunderstanding between Amir Khan and two other youths.

“On Monday, July 7, Amir was notified by the police that the allegations against him had been withdrawn and the matter would not be pursued any further.”

Anyone else would have been charged, funny what fame does, makes me sick, what was he doing out at that time in a morning should have been at home with his wife and baby. In my opinion he is arrogant and full of himself, wife would be better off without him , he should be setting an example.

absolutely, I think Mr Khan needs to rethink his priorities in life.

i.e. his wife and child; not cruising the bloody streets early in the morning. I actually feel sorry for his wife who appears to be a decent person.

Khan is even more unpopular than Phil Gartside or Cliff Morris in Boltonian circles and that takes some doing!. For some reason the BN have a love affair with this guy even though 90pc of the town seemingly dislike him.

How many more times is he going to get away with breaking the law?

Knocking a person down in a vehicle doing 40mph in the town centre, excessive speeding at 125 mph on the M62 motorway, fighting in Birmingham and now fighting again in his own town.

Makes you wonder what kind of career he would have if he was not a Boxer.

In the original report Police said the two men were hurt but not seriously injured in the incident, khan says he did nothing! So who's lying the police or khan?
.
Then the BN reported "One of the alleged victims is believed to have suffered an injury on his cheek and the other on his leg." The men were known to Amir. Now suddenly no injuries?

Witnesses claim the incident started when a member of the group was accused of giving “cheek” to a friend of Amir’s.

One man, who wanted to remain anonymous, claimed: “Amir was saying don’t you know who I am, I am AK.

"We have always looked up to him as a role model with him being a Muslim and successful.

"It is going to cause tension in the community. He is a world champion, an adult, the people involved are aged 19.”
.
If there was no assault then how can the people involved be 19?
.
What a load of tosh, lies lies lies from the police and plenty of taqiyya from khan and the muslim community! Disgraceful!

Obviously nobody got beaten up if Amir was involved, he couldn't bang a door.
