Tottenham defender Danny Rose was under arrest on Wednesday night after being involved in a car crash in the early hours of the morning.
Out of favour left back Rose, 30, was arrested for dangerous driving after his car collided with the central reservation of the A45 in Northampton, according to The Sun.
He is believed to have escaped unhurt, though his vehicle was severely damaged.

One of the wheels came off the car in the incident and Rose’s rear bumper was also left hanging off.
Police attended the scene and Rose had to take a breathalyser test. His result was negative but he was arrested and taken to a Northamptonshire police station for further questioning.
He was examined by medics before they determined he was well enough to be quizzed by officers.
A spokesperson for Northamptonshire Police said: ‘We can confirm a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving on the A45 in Northampton shortly after 4am today.
‘The suspect is currently being held at a police station in the county and, as such, it would be inappropriate for Northamptonshire Police to comment further at this time.’
Why Rose was in the area on Wednesday is unknown. Spurs were in action at Stoke, winning 3-1 at the Championship side to earn a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

But Rose has not been involved with the senior team after being frozen out by manager Jose Mourinho, with whom he clashed last season over his lack of game-time.
Rose had quickly fallen out of favour following Mourinho’s arrival 13 months ago and spent the second half of the interrupted campaign on loan at Newcastle. A permanent deal for him on Tyneside did not materialise.
Confirmation there was no way back for him came when he was not given a squad number by Spurs ahead of this season, and he has seen summer signing Sergio Reguilon replace him as first choice left back.
Rose was also left out of both Premier League and Europa League squads. He has been capped by England 29 times since his debut in 2016.
On Wednesday night, a Tottenham spokesman claimed to have no knowledge of the incident.
