John Terry’s father, Ted Terry was arrested by the police after a late night fight with his girlfriend which left her begging their neighbours to take him away from her.
The 65-year-old father of the ex English footballer reportedly attacked his 42-year-old girlfriend, Evelyn Minkey during a late-night row at their home in Chafford Hundred, near Grays, Essex over the weekend.
While Evelyn suffered a cut finger, a shirtless Terry was bundled into a police van by police officers who turned up at the scene. He was reportedly held for 14 hours before being released with no charge.
Recounting how the incident occurred, a neighbour told The Sun that Evelyn was accusing Terry of taking her purse and phone.
“She started screaming, ‘He’s a psycho’ and ‘Get him away from me’. There was lots of screaming and shouting and she was telling people to call the police, which someone did.
“She was shouting about him throwing the phone at her.
“I didn’t see any injuries on her but her hair was all dishevelled.”
Neighbours also revealed that Terry who has convictions for common assault, cocaine dealing and racially aggravated public disorder, had a heated row in the street with Evelyn six days before he was arrested.
The Police who confirmed they arrested him, said he was released without charge because there was insufficient evidence.
Terry is believed to have separated from John’s mum Sue 20 years ago and has been in a relationship with Ms Minkey for three years. Terry’s son John enjoyed a glittering playing career for England and Chelsea. He is currently assistant manager at Premier League side Aston Villa.
