The star of U.K. soap opera Coronation Street was detained in the early hours of Sunday morning (25Oct15) after police officers were called to a bar in Britain's Lake District to investigate reports of a brawl.

A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "About five or six police vans turned up. Cops round here don't mess about when someone can't handle their drink. Outside it kicked off again. He was put in the back of a van... It was a really big scene."

The 31 year old spent a night behind bars before he was released with a $144 (£90) fine for being drunk and disorderly.

A spokesperson for Cumbria Police says, "Officers arrested a 31-year-old man on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly."
