Ex-Premier League Prodigy Arrested for Illegal Cock FIghting

The Brazilian ex player Fabio Rochemback has been arrested over suspicion on being involved in an illegal cock-fighting ring.

Cockfight

He was once a e Barcelona prodigy and former Middlesbrough star. Rochemback is said to have been held after police raided an alleged fighting event where 89 roosters were confiscated along with around £25,000 in cash.

Around 57 out of 147 people were arrested and charged with environmental crime, including Fabio.

The time of jail could be between three months to one year.

However it is not the first time Rochemback is implicated in a crime like this. Back in 2011 his farm was raided and it was discovered, he had fighting cocks.

Cockfighting is a blood sport, usually between two cocks, held in a ring called a cockpit.

It was banned in England back in 1835, and in Scotland in 1895, although critics say it continues today, underground in the UK and abroad.
