Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has been arrested in Lahore after being accused of assaulting a police warden.
Akmal, 23, denied the charges and said the traffic warden had slapped him.
Akmal said that he came to the police station to register a complaint and instead they detained him. However, senior police official Tariq Aziz said Akmal had "violated a traffic signal and when he was stopped by the warden he got abusive and tore his shirt.
