Fredy Guarin has been arrested by the Colombian police for allegedly assaulting his father and other family members.
Colombian newspaper El Pais per Daily Mail have reported the 34-year-old was confronted by police on Thursday afternoon.
A video released on social media shows the former Inter Milan man being dragged away by police with his clothing covered in blood.
Semana state Colombian police have confirmed Guarin's arrest and claim the midfielder was 'under influence of substances' during his arrest.
A statement from Jorge Vargas reads, as per Infobae: "There was a call for domestic violence. When the police arrive at the scene, they find personal injuries inside a house where the son was starring [sic] in a fight against his parents. They acted very professionally, the parents asked for assistance so that this person was taken away and as the law says, this was done."
Commander of the Valle de Aburra Metropolitan Police, General Pablo Ferney Ruiz has also stated that Guarin attempted to attack the doctors and nurses who tried to treat him.
He said: "There he had an inconsistent behavior and began verbally and physically attacking both the police officers and the medical staff and nurses."
Ruiz added, "It was again necessary to reduce it through the legitimate use of force so that it was attended by medical personnel. We are evaluating possible complaints for an attack on the public servant."
Guarin came to prominence in European football during his time at FC Porto and Saint-Etienne. In 2012, he moved to Inter where he gained much of his fame.
