Wright Accused Of Racist Taunts

Updated:10:33, Friday November 02, 2007
Former football star Ian Wright is to be questioned by police over alleged racist comments.

Wright denies the allegation

The former Arsenal and England striker is accused of racially abusing a black traffic warden during a dispute over a parking ticket last month.
The BBC Sport pundit, who also co-hosts a Talksport radio show, denies the allegation.
Wright told The Sun: "He's a liar. He called me a white man who lives in a white man's road."
"I said to him, 'I'm sure your parents are happy that you've come to England and been a traffic warden instead of a lawyer or something'."
A spokeswoman for Scotland Yard told Sky News Online: "Officers received an allegation of racial abuse which will be investigated.
"An allegation was made to police on October 31 and relates to an incident on October 4."
Police were called to the 43-year-old's home in St John's Wood, north London, following a disturbance when the former footballer received a ticket for parking on the street without a permit.
A 38-year-old friend of Wright was cautioned for assault after a scuffle with the traffic warden.
