Tarrant arrested in assault claim
TV star Chris Tarrant was arrested over the alleged assault of a woman at his Surrey home, police have confirmed.
The 62-year-old was questioned by officers after a woman claimed she had been assaulted during a domestic dispute at his property in Esher.
The host of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? and Colour of Money was released without charge following the incident on 5 March.
Surrey Police said no further action was being taken.
A spokesman said: "Police officers attended an address in Esher at 12.58am on Thursday 5 March following reports of a domestic dispute.
"A man in his 60s was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to Staines Police Station.
"He was later released without any further action being taken."
The alleged victim is not believed to be Mr Tarrant's former wife Ingrid, 56.
The couple split up in September 2006 after she discovered he had been committing adultery.
His former wife was awarded almost half of a £25 million fortune in the divorce settlement.
The couple's 15-year-marriage came to an end when Mrs Tarrant hired private detectives to investigate her husband over suspicions he was being unfaithful. THE BBC.CO.UK
