Chelsea defender John Terry was in police custody on Friday after an alleged assault at a nightclub in west London.

Club spokesman Gwyn Williams said: "We have a disciplinary policy and if it is found that he has been out of line, he will be disciplined accordingly."

The centre-half, touted for an England call-up, was arrested on suspicion of hitting a member of staff at the Wellington Club, Knightsbridge. It is also alleged that Terry was drunk and disorderly.

Wimbledon defender Des Byrne is also being held at Belgravia police station in connection with the same incident.

Terry was among a group of Chelsea stars, including Frank Lampard, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Jody Morris, fined two weeks' wages and forced to apologise for being drunk at a Heathrow hotel filled with American tourists after the September 11 atrocities.

Morris was in trouble again late last year for another drunken incident in a nightclub.
