'Ground Force's Tommy Walsh spent the night in a police cell over the weekend after he was arrested for assault.
The 58-year-old builder was detained by law enforcement officers on Friday night (29.01.16) after he locked horns with two men - one of which was taken to hospital - when he caught them urinating in his neighbour's garden as he made his way home from a pub in Hackney, London.
He told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I saw them as I was coming home and I said, that's bang out of order. It's disgusting. My neighbour's kids play in that garden.
"They came out into the street at me aggressively. They sounded Eastern European.
"I felt threatened and there was an altercation. It was just handbags and pulling shirts and things, nothing really.
"It was over really quickly - no punching or kicking or anything. Afterwards one of the guys was bleeding a bit so I brought him into my house and got him a plaster for his ear.
"He was all apologetic at first but then he started to get aggressive again so I ushered him out of the door.
"I thought that was the end of it but 20 minutes later I had the police here saying he had complained and they were arresting me. I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a joke."
Tommy has been released on bail until mid-March but faces a criminal investigation for '"inflicting actual bodily harm."
