Former Raw Host In Legal Trouble For Cocaine Incident

The following is a new article from UK’s Daily Sun:


BOXER Ricky Hatton looks likely to escape with a caution for his cocaine shame.

But police will ask him to name his supplier.

The former world light welterweight champ is in rehab after he was caught snorting “industrial” amounts of the drug during a 10-hour bender.

He is being treated for drug and booze dependency and depression. Hatton checked into the exclusive 47-bed Priory clinic in Cheshire after he was filmed taking drugs in a Manchester hotel two weeks ago.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “We are aware of the allegations made against Mr Hatton and are looking into the matter.”

Hatton’s manager dad Ray said his son had struggled to come to terms with his crushing defeat by Manny Pacquiao, 31, in just two rounds in Las Vegas last year.

He said: “He’d get depressed and would have a drink to lift his spirits. That was how it started. He would drink more and more.”

Hatton is expected to attend a charity dinner organised by world light welterweight champion Amir Khan, 23, tonight.
