Report: Bayern defender Breno arrested
Bayern Munich’s Brazilian defender Breno has been arrested in an
arson investigation following a fire that gutted his house earlier
The Munich Prosecutor’s office said Breno was taken into
investigative custody on Saturday to prevent the 21-year-old player
from fleeing or tinkering with evidence, according to the German
news agency dapd.
The prosecutors said Friday they had opened an arson
investigation against Breno.
The player was suspected of ”grave arson” in the case.
Police initially said the Brazilian managed to flee from his
burning house in a leafy Munich suburb shortly after midnight
Tuesday. He was treated in a hospital for smoke inhalation as a
precaution and was not seriously injured.
The fire gutted the house and caused up to ?1.5 million ($2.05
million) worth of damage.
Breno was alone in the house at the time.
