Serbian police make arrest in soccer fan death

BY foxsports • November 20, 2009

Serbian police say they have arrested another suspect in the fatal attack on a French soccer fan in Belgrade two months ago.

Police say a 39-year-old man identified only as Dejan S. from Belgrade is suspected of taking part in the killing of French citizen Brice Taton.

Taton was among a group of Toulouse fans who were attacked by Partizan Belgrade hooligans before a Europa League match between the teams in September. Taton was badly injured in the attack and died several days later in a Belgrade hospital.

Serbian authorities have arrested 11 suspects in the attack and moved to ban violent soccer fan groups.

Serbian authorities don't release the full last name of criminal suspects.
