The 24-year-old Arsenal midfielder was reportedly on a night out with his
girlfriend Adriana Michael and a group of friends when he got into a nasty street brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning, though he denied throwing any punches.
But police have confirmed they are investigating scenes of disorder outside London West End nightspot Cafe de Paris, scene of the incident, at 2.15am.
Jack Wilshere, who has not played for Arsenal since last August, had been given Sunday off by manager Arsene Wenger and he took the opportunity to get into a fresh quagmire.
A Metropolitan Police statement read:
“At 02:15hrs on Sunday, 3 April, police patrolling Coventry Street, W1, became aware of two groups of males involved in an altercation.
“Officers intervened and one man claimed he was assaulted. He did not require hospital treatment. There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal insisted the incident was a private matter and would be dealt with internally this week.
But club officials were understood to be less than impressed by Wilshere’s antics, particularly as he had only just returned to fitness.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will definitely be disappointed with Wilshere especially with his rich history of thuggery and the Frenchman is set to discuss the latest incident with the England international at the club’s London Colney HQ on Monday.
Wilshere is expected to make a first-team return before the end of the month after recovering from almost a year-long leg injury.
