The 27-year-old was released from police custody on Saturday following on the island of Mykonos on Thursday after an alleged altercation with police officers.
He is not obliged to be in attendance at the trial in Syros on Tuesday. Maguire has already pleaded not guilty, and he did not comment after leaving court on Saturday but his lawyer told Sky he was a free man “right now”. The Syros prosecutor’s office said on Friday that “three foreigners” had been arrested after an alleged altercation with police officers in Mykonos on Thursday.
Police say a file has been opened against the player of which they include “violence against officials, disobedience, bodily harm, insult and attempted bribery of an official”, the Manchester skipper, however, denied all the accusations levelled against him. Greek police said in a statement on Friday that officers had tried to break up an altercation between two groups outside a bar and that the three foreigners had then verbally abused and assaulted one of the officers.
