Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan arrested; suspected of drunk driving

Barry Bannan has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after apparently crashing his Range Rover. As if the match against West Brom wasn't bad enough on multiple levels, this news is like kicking someone in the face after they've fallen to the ground because of a previous kick to the grapes. 

I'm sure there's going to be plenty of fallout from this story as it develops. I'm glad that no one was hurt, it seems. Barry Bannan has arguably been one of Aston Villa's top players in the past few weeks. This is bad news.
