Blackburn striker arrested in fixing inquiry

The English soccer club Blackburn says striker D.J. Campbell is

one of the six people arrested in the latest match-fixing

investigation in British soccer.

The arrests came after an investigation by The Sun on Sunday

newspaper.

Blackburn says on its website it will not comment further

because this is an ongoing legal matter. The club plays in the

second-tier League Championship, one step below the Premier

League.

The 32-year-old Campbell has previously played in the Premier

League for Birmingham, Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers.

Another investigation last month, by the Daily Telegraph, led to

two players from the sixth tier being charged with conspiring to

fix matches.
