According to The Mirror, Paul allegedly held a security guard by the throat before grabbing the arm of ex-wife Sheryl Gascoigne when she tried to intervene.

A police spokesman said: “There are two allegations of common assault. One was against a man who is a station security guard.

“The allegation there is the 46-year-old man grabbed the security guard around the neck and the other allegation is regarding a member of the public who arrived at the station while this was happening.

“The accusation is that he grabbed their arm.”

Paul was reportedly held in a cell overnight for 12 hours and bailed on Friday.

The ex-England player previously confessed that doctors thought he would diefollowing a bad reaction to alcohol withdrawal that saw him rushed to intensive care in February.

“I was out cold for three days,” he recalled. “I thought I was on my way out. I looked like a corpse. I was a total wreck.

“But I’m here, I have another chance – and I’m going to take it. It’s got to inspire me never to let this happen again. I’ve come through that – death.”
