Ghanaian Defender, John Paintsil Arrested For Stabbing His Wife
The former Fulham defender, who last played in England with Leicester City, is currently being held in the Legon station in the capital Accra.
According to Accra police spokesman, Freeman Tettey, he claimed Paintsil stabbed his wife in the upper eyelid, and she had to be rushed to a hospital.
The ex-Fulham defender is in the police custody as investigation process begins.
"The wife scaled a wall to a neighbour's house for protection and immediately, John Paintsil also pursued her, came to the neighbour's house, gave him some slaps and threatened to shoot him".
'That scared the gentleman who rushed to the police to lodge a complaint.'
The police spokesman, Tettey was unable to confirm details on the status of Paintsil's wife, Richlove's health.
'She collapsed, which suggests she is in a critical condition, but for now we don't know her current state,' he told BBC Sport.
'When she is stable, we can start taking statements from her.'
It is understood that the police can only keep Paintsil in custody for 48 hours before deciding whether or not to charge him.
