Footballer Direct News: Caulker Accused of Stealing Cheese
Premier league footballer Steven Caulker, the £8 million defender of Queens Park Rangers, was handcuffed by police on suspicion of stealing a £1.85 tub of Philadelphia cheese from a Tesco store in Weybridge, Surrey. Caulker, 22, earns around £42,000 a week and was later released by police with no charges.
Witnesses from across the street had immediately recognised the footballer and reportedly found it hilarious.
A Surrey police spokeswoman said that no crime had been committed and that "there was some confusion between staff about payment." This confusion led to officers jumping out of a nearby squad car and handcuffed the English national squad defender in front of stunned on-lookers.
QPR nor Caulker have made a comment on the matter as yet. Find out more about Footballer Direct!
