Man arrested after racism probe

English club Millwall says a man has been arrested following a

police investigation into racist abuse at a football match against

Leeds last year.

Television footage showed Leeds forward El Hadji Diouf, a former

African footballer of the year, being subjected to racist chants

and taunts throughout the League Championship game on Nov. 18.

Millwall says Gerrard Scanlon, a 53-year-old driver from north

London, has been charged with a racially aggravated public order

offense. He has been released on bail and will appear at a

magistrates court on Feb. 27.

The club says that ”police investigations are ongoing in the

light of recent evidence made available to them.”
