Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is understood to have been out socialising with Blackburn Rovers managing director Derek Shaw at a Lancashire wine bar at the time of an incident in which Moyes is accused of assaulting a man.
Mr Shaw was on the board at Preston North End when Moyes began his managerial career at Deepdale before the Scotsman moved onto Everton.
A minor scuffle between Moyes, 51, and a 23-year-old man is alleged to have happened in the Emporium bar in Clitheroe town centre at about 10pm yesterday.
