Leigh Griffiths arrested over Edinburgh city centre assault

Former Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths has been arrested and charged in connection with an assault in Edinburgh.

Griffiths was said to have grabbed a man by the throat during a row in the city centre on Wednesday.

Police said they were called to an incident at about 14:00 before arresting a 22-year-old man.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal in relation to the incident."

Leigh Griffiths was on loan at Hibs last season from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves, however, have rejected an offer from Hibs to sign the striker on a permanent basis.
