INJURED Ipswich Town striker Paul Taylor has been bailed after police arrested him on suspicion of attacking bar staff at a town centre pub.

Two members of staff were left with broken bones after the alleged incident at the Robert Ransomes pub in the early hours.

A man, understood to be Taylor, and a woman were arrested following the alleged assault at the pub in Tower Street.

Police officers were called at around 12.15am on October 16 to the incident.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said one victim suffered a broken rib while the other was left with a fractured eye socket and broken finger.

A 25-year-old man from Ipswich and a 24-year-old woman from Liverpool were detained by police on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

They have been released on bail pending further inquiries. Both are due to return to police on January 16.

Taylor signed for the Super Blues from Peterborough United for £1.5million.

He is out for the season after breaking his ankle durign the Wolves game – his third appearance for the club.

An ITFC spokesman told The Star: “We are aware of an alleged incident that took place in the town recently involving one of our players that is currently being investigated by the police.

“We are in communication with the police authorities over this matter but will be making no further comment at this stage. “

  • Why is this board suddenly being invested with Norwich trolls? If ever we needed evidence of their inherent inferiority complex and chip on both shoulders, it is their need to STILL defer to Ipswich Town as their reference point, despite the fact they are a bottom half (but still) Premiership club and we are, well...the circus in the town springs to mind. I can't imagine feeling any need to even consider Norwich, let alone post on their local board, if we were in the prem and they were where we are. You can laugh all you want - form is temporary and class is permanent. When you want to bring your trophies, history, tradition and England managers and captains to the table, let me know.
