Arsenal star Mesut Ozil questioned over collision with photographer

Troubled Arsenal star Mesut Ozil was quizzed by police over allegations the car he was driving was in a collision with a photographer.

The £42.5million record signing was back at home in Germany on Monday night after being given a two-day break to get away from problems on and off the pitch – he was rested from Saturday's team following the Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.

Ozil was not even named among the subs by boss Arsene Wenger for the 4-0 win over Sunderland, the day after the alleged incident which happened in Highgate, North London.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: 'Police were called at approximately 7.18pm on Friday 21 February to reports of an alleged collision between a vehicle and a member of the public.

'The member of the public, a man in his 30s, sustained minor injuries. Officers have spoken to the driver of the vehicle.'
The spokesman said inquiries were continuing and no arrests have been made.
