Teenager arrested over malicious tweet to McManaman

Police have arrested a Northumberland teenager over a tweet sent to a footballer at the centre of a controversial tackle which injured a Newcastle United player.

Wigan Athletic's Callum McManaman has been in the spotlight since his challenge on Newcastle United full back Massadio Haidara on Sunday.

He has been strongly criticised for the tackle, which saw the French under 21 player stretchered from the field, though he received no card during the game and the FA has since said that he will face no retrospective punishment.

A 17-year-old from Ashington, was arrested on Monday on suspicion of making a malicious communication on Twitter, Northumbria Police said, and issued with a fixed penalty notice.
