Harry Maguire has been released from police custody on Saturday. The Manchester United captain was released following a not guilty plea after a brawl on Mykonos, a Greek Island, according to Reuters.
Maguire is not required to show up at Tuesday’s court hearing. However, he can be represented by his lawyer at the hearing.
At this time, he is free to return home.
On Thursday night, there was a brawl that Maguire, his brother, along with a friend, are accused of fighting with another group of British tourists. During the initial incident, a police officer was allegedly punched at the incident scene.
Another fight allegedly broke out at the police station. Three men resisted arrest, according to reports, including shoving and striking officers.
From the two incidents, four law enforcement officers were injured. Police have also said that one suspect even attempted to bribe officers with hush money to cover up the incidents.
It’s not clear at this time what charges Maguire is facing. However, the authorities have charged those involved with assault, resisting arrest, verbally insulting and threatening the arresting officers, along with attempted bribery.
“Following the appearance in court today, we note the adjournment of the case to allow the legal team to consider the case file,” Manchester United said in a statement, according to BBC Sport. “Harry has pleaded not guilty to the charges. It would be inappropriate for the player or club to comment further while the legal process takes its course.”
On Friday, Manchester United said that Maguire was cooperating with the authorities. One year ago, he joined Manchester United after competing for Leicester City for a transfer fee of 80 million pounds, or $105 million US dollars.
Reuters said that he traveled to Mykonos for a holiday trip after the team’s exit from the Europa League. Mykonos is a popular tourist attraction.
