Ian Alleyne detained by police
Crime Watch host, Ian Alleyne, is in police custody after he was arrested outside the home of the owner of a Chaguanas business for allegedly using obscene language.
Alleyne was outside the home of the businessman to follow up on a story about allegations of domestic abuse.
Over the weekend, social media was flooded with images of a woman who was accusing the businessman of assaulting her.
Around 9.30am today when he and the businessman were having a conversation, a group of police officers appeared on the scene.
T&T Guardian understands Alleyne and a well-known senior police officer got into a scuffle outside the home in Orchard Gardens, which led to the TV host's arrest.
They were alleging that he was using obscene language.
Alleyne is currently receiving treatment at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Centre after complaining about not feeling well.
When asked by the media if he was using obscene language, he categorically said no.
Alleyne is being represented by attorney Gerard Ramdeen.
It is unclear if the business owner who was accused of abuse is also being charged.
