Spain: The banana thrower arrested by police

He must really regret having committed the act that many have considered subversive, because it is definitely the whole world that stood up against him. Banned from the stadium for life, dismissed from Villareal, the banana thrower on Dani Alves has just been arrested by the Spanish police.

“This person has been arrested for a crime against the fundamental rights and civil liberties’ , told AFP a spokesman for the police.

However, he was released after being questioned. But he will face up to three years in prison.

Dani Alves was preparing to shoot a corner at El Madrigal stadium in Villarreal Sunday at the 35th day of the Championship of Spain ( 2-3) when he picked up the banana, peeled it and ate a piece before resuming the game as if nothing had happened.

This reaction full of humor ignited social networks and led to multiple expressions of support, including Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, the star striker Neymar of Barca and the president of the International Football Federation ( FIFA) Sepp Blatter http://en.africatopsports.com/2014/04/29/throwing-banana-to-alves-blatter-speaks-of-a-scandal/ .
