Paintsil and his wife, Richlove, are said to have reported to the East Legon police station over a domestic issue.

It is not immediately clear how he ended up hitting DSP Emmanuel Basintale, who is said to be the station commander.

One report said Richlove had reported Paintsil to the police for allegedly stealing her car and that the former Fulham defender had flared up and attacked the police officer during interrogation.

The former Ghana full back is said to have been locked up in the cells as a result of his action.
