Ullrich arrested for attack on prostitute

Former German cyclist Jan Ullrich won the Tour de France in 1997

Jan Ullrich, who won the Tour de France in 1997, was arrested after an alleged attak on an escort in Frankfurt.

AA former victor of the Tour de France was arrested in Frankfurt yesterday for allegedly beating and attempting to strangle an escort in his hotel suite. "Mr Ullrich is still in custody".

Police and local prosecutors later said in a statement that they were investigating a case of attempted manslaughter and grievous bodily harm but that the suspect, who they did not name, had been released.

"Jan Ullrich was arrested today after a dispute at a hotel in Frankfurt", a police spokesperson explained.

But he then got into a quarrel with the "escort lady" and "physically attacked and injured her", police said.

Kimmel earlier asked West if he was anxious about his wife, Kim Kardashian West , being alone with the president in the Oval Office.

"An investigation is underway for attempted homicide, assault and battery, possession of unsafe goods, but the prosecution does not now see any serious indication of attempted murder ... and [therefore] reason to place him in pre-trial detention", she added, although a judge will decide this question Friday.

The German news agency DPA reported that Ullrich, 44, had been arrested the week before in Mallorca, where he lives, following an incident on the property of his neighbour, the actor Til Schweiger.

Ullrich had told German Bild newspaper in an interview earlier this week that he had marriage problems and was emotionally stressed after his wife had made a decision to separate.

"I've done and taken things that I very much regret", Ullrich told Bild, adding: "Out of love for my children, I'm doing therapy now". I took nothing that the others didn't also take.

In 2013, he admitted to doping, having been served a two-year ban by sporting regulators.
