Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona was reportedly arrested this week after his ex-girlfriend sued him for a $9 million pay-out.
Local media in Buenos Aires are suggesting the football legend was detained when he flew into the Argentina capital from Mexico. Maradona was returning to his homeland from Mexico where he is the manager of a club side, Dorados de Sinaloa when he was reportedly confronted and then issued a formal notice of the proceedings against him from Rocio Oliva.
It is believed the controversial Argentina hero was spoken to regarding a court action filed by his former partner Rocio Oliva., who he dated for six-year before they broke up in December last year.
Oliva recently launched a claim in the San Miguel Family Court for “action of economic compensation” against the 58-year-old. A court date has been listed for June 13, which will be attended by his lawyer Matias Morla. According to the Sun, Maradona was later released after several hours of interrogation, and negotiation aided by the Argentinian consul Agostini Molin.
