A 15-year-old boy has been arrested by police investigating an alleged racist tweet aimed at Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck. The teenager was held and questioned on suspicion of racial abuse following the posting of a message on Twitter after Welbeck scored the winner to knock his former club Manchester United out of the FA Cup on March 9.
A 15-year-old male from the Salisbury area was arrested on the evening of March 12 on suspicion of racial abuse. He has been released on police bail until April 13. The investigation is ongoing.
Welbeck joined the gunners for £16m last year.

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he thinks the shooting at the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo is shocking. At today's press conference, the Frenchman added he hopes his country stays united after the attacks:
A football fan has been charged by police after allegedly confronting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger after his side lost 2-0 at Southampton.
The arrest came after a supporter was seen running with his arms outstretched in front of Wenger as he sat in the dugout at St Mary's Stadium in yesterday.
25 year old Luke Bryant of Bankhill Drive, Lymington, Hampshire, was arrested and subsequently charged with an offence of going on to an area adjacent to the playing area contrary to the Football (Offences) Act 1991, and is due to appear at Southampton Magistrates' Court on later this month.
Arsenal fans travelling to today's away match against Southampton FC should avoid the A3. Police were called to a serious collision on the A3 southbound this morning just after 7.30am .
The southbound carriageway is closed between the junctions of the A283 (near Thursley in Surrey) and the A325 (near Liphook in Hampshire) and is not expected to re-open until late this afternoon. A diversion route is in place.
Arsenal fans will have their fingers crossed when the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League is made on Monday. Because they didn't win their group, they are likely to get a tough draw in the next round which starts in February. Amongst the teams they could face are the German giants Bayern Munich, who knocked them out last season, the reigning champions Real Madrid or Lionel Messi's Barcelona.
The six teams they could be drawn with are:
- Atletico Madrid
- Bayern Munich
- Real Madrid
Chelsea, on the other hand, won their group and are expected to go through to the quarter-finals, though they will not want to face the French side Paris Saint-Germain. The teams they could be drawn with are:
- Bayer Leverkusen
- Paris Saint-Germain
- Shakhtar Donetsk
Arsene Wenger believes his team will be back to full confidence after they've experienced a few more matches like the ones they had earlier this week.
According to ITV Sport, Wenger describes his team's performance as being 'a bit edgy' and needing a few more games.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the league after beating Newcastle United 4-1 on Saturday.
