What? Pissed?

George Best? I don't believe it!

FORMER Manchester United and Northern Ireland football star George Best spent 11 hours under arrest yesterday after allegedly assaulting his estranged wife, Alex.

Best, 57, was arrested after a drunken tiff with his wife in the southern England town of Reigate where he and Alex once shared a house, The Sun newspaper reported.

"A 57-year-old male was arrested on December 26 at approximately 2am in Reigate, in relation to an allegation of assault," police said, refusing to confirm his identity or the victim of the alleged assault.

"He has been released without charge and no allegation is being pursued by any party," police said.

The reported arrest is the latest drama in the life of the football legend who split from 31-year-old Alex in September after failing to give up drinking, despite undergoing a liver transplant in July, 2002.

Just shoot him already. What an embarassment.
