Five arrested over PSG assault

BY foxsports • March 17, 2010

Five people have been arrested and detained in custody after a Paris Saint-Germain fan was attacked by rival PSG supporters and left in a coma during a French league match last month.

Paris prosecutor's office says the five men were arrested Wednesday morning in a Parisian suburb.

Another man suspected of taking part in the assault was indicted for "attempted murder" last weekend after being identified through video surveillance cameras.

Street clashes involving hooligans from rival PSG factions erupted before and after Marseille's 3-0 win on Feb. 28.
