The rather under-rated Titus Bramble has been arrested by Cleveland police on charges relating to sexual assault and the possession of Class A drugs.
While the Class A possession story is arguably open for Pies’ brand of cutting wit, the sexual assault story is rather more serious and less funny.
Sunderland have already issued a statement: “The club is looking into this matter but due to ongoing police investigations is unable to comment further at this stage.”
We shall wait and see what happens. In the meantime, expect a few “Life gets thorny for Bramble”-style puns to do the rounds.
