Pro Green, who turned 30 earlier this week with wife Millie Mackintosh by his side, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving earlier this month.

He was taken into custody on November 3, after police found his Mercedes had been involved in a minor crash.

Reports say that he contacted the police himself, to report a mugging.
