Brighton’s Glenn Murray in trouble with the police

A crazy story has broken on Wednesday regarding Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray.

As reported in the Sun, the Brighton centre-forward, along with his wife, have been arrested for tax fraud.

Murray and his partner, Stacey, are accused of defrauding the Treasury to the tune of 1.1 million pounds. The Sun have told the story as follow:

Brighton star Glenn Murray and his wife have been arrested in connection with an alleged £1.1million tax fraud.

The five-bedroom property was searched by HMRC officers and a number of items, including computers, were seized.

The Sun also published quotes from an HMRC officer about why the couple were specifically arrested:

The man was arrested on suspicion of evading Income Tax and VAT, and cheating the public revenue.

Will Glenn Murray be banned from playing for Brighton?

So far there’s no reason to suspect that will be the case.

After a purple patch earlier in the season, Murray has scored six times in 22 Premier League games this season.

The veteran has stopped being a regular starter for the Seagulls. Indeed, last weekend in a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea he came on as a second half sub.
