Prof Green arrested after crash

Rapper Professor Green was arrested on suspicion of drink driving after police responded to reports of a mugging in south London.

Green, real name Stephen Manderson, was taken to a police station on Sunday November 3 and later released on bail.

When officers attended the scene of a suspected mugging at 2.40am, they found Professor Green's car had been involved in a collision with a van. Inquiries into the crash and the mugging are still being held, according to a spokeswoman for Scotland Yard.

Professor Green, who married Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh in September, was hurt in a car crash in May this year and said at the time that his health, an album and a tour were in "in absolute jeopardy".

His tour was later postponed until May 2014. He said he needed more time to work on his new album.

The star was well enough to join Millie at a Halloween party hosted by TV talk show host Jonathan Ross on Friday. They were dressed as Morticia and Gomez from the Addams Family.

He was also seen at the Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday, following his reported arrest.
