Colombian authorities have arrested former Colombia, Inter and Porto midfielder Freddy Guaren for assaulting his father and family members.
The 34-year-old was arrested and videos appeared on social media with blood staining his clothes.
Local police claimed that Jawarin “was under the influence of narcotics” during his arrest.
According to Infobae, “There was a complaint of domestic violence, and when the police arrived at the scene, they found personal injuries inside a house where the son was playing the lead role in a quarrel against his parents.”
“They acted very professionally, and the parents asked for help until this person was transferred, and as stipulated by law, this was done,” the report added.
While police chief Pablo Ruiz said that the player tried to attack doctors and nurses while he was being treated.
“He had inconsistent behavior and started verbally and physically assaulting the police, medical staff and nurses,” Ruiz said.
As the life of a great player ends, drugs and alcohol destroy the human being.
Instability at home and bad company lead to the abyss.
A sad end awaits Fredy Guarin, hopefully his football friends shake his hand and take him out of his doom. pic.twitter.com/aZknfEa4k5
