Traore Arrested At White Hart Lane

Traore Arrested At White Hart Lane

Arsenal wonder kid, Armand Traore was arrested on Saturday, and formally cautioned, for amazingly taking a set of knuckle dusters to White Hart Lane.

As I flicked through the daily rags this morning my eyes widened with astonishment as I read the article informing me of Traore's arrest.

The young Frenchman was arrested after Armand tried to gain entry to White Hart Lane for the first North London derby of the season after being omitted from the squad.

Traore, 17, was asked to empty his pockets at the turnstiles of WHL where it was revealed the left-back had a set of KNUCKLE DUSTERS in his pocket.

He was immediately arrested, along with a friend and taken into custody for questioning. He was later released after being formally cautioned.

The apparent difference in laws between England and France were the reason that Traore didn't realise he was doing anything wrong.

But I choose to believe that he'd been forewarned of the pleasant reception you receive at WHL and worried he might be recognised.

Funny? or Idiotic?

Way to sit on the fence GK. It was very silly, but me thinks this will heighten AT to legendary status amongst some sections of supporters.

What was he thinking! Can't see Wenger being too impressed with that.

I don't know whether the "laws different in England and France" thing was just a way of diffusing the situation or what. Still, it does seem a crazy thing to do. Topspur, do they often search the pockets of people entering WHL?

Yes Rocky they do search pockets. A mate of mine had his marajuana confiscated a few years back. Funny thing was he used to smoke it to calm him down. He was a f*** ng wreck.

Lmao @ HS. What I was wondering was why didn't he just go along with the team?

That's idiotic, noq uestion. There's only one reason you carry something like that. Plus, he had the choice of being a pro kickboxer, what the hell would he need a knuckleduster for?

Not usually Rocky7! Makes you wonder if he was acting the goat, or if he was flashing them about. Their had to be a reason for them searching him, strange situation really
