Leyton Orient defender Andrea Dossena says the reason he was arrested is he forgot to pay for a jar of honey.

The Italian was stopped by security at Harrods on Monday, who subsequently called police, who arrested Dossena, before later bailing him.

In regard to the news released today on some websites, I would like to make very clear that the story reported is unfounded.

I was in Harrods with my wife and my son for some shopping and I forgot to pay a honey jar and some sliced meats we had previously ordered. While exiting the shop unaware of my oversight, I was stopped by security guards [who] then called the police as a standard routine procedure.

As I wasn’t carrying with me any identity documents at the time, I was asked to go to the nearest police station in order to be identified after which I left and went back home. Hence, I have now instructed my lawyers to protect my image with all necessary legal actions against those who reported this inaccurate and tendentious news.
