Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac’s wife held by police after bringing stun gun into the UK

Sead Kolasinac’s wife was held by police after bringing a stun gun into the UK. The Arsenal defender’s wife was looking to protect herself following issues in the past and the increased security risk footballers have come under during the UK lockdown.

Bella Kolasinac was involved the knife attack suffered by Arsenal duo Kolasinac and Mesut Ozil.

She had fled the country for Germany and she didn’t realise the stun gun was banned in the UK.

Border Force officers at London Biggin Hill Airport found the device, and she was let off with a caution despite the potential for six months in prison.

A spokesman for Kolasinac, 26, told the Sun: “It was all a misunderstanding. The electro shocker was still in its packaging and didn’t have any batteries.

“Bella was able to prove she sent emails to the flight operators to make sure she could import it.

“Unfortunately, she was in the air with her phone off when she received an email saying the device was illegal.

“The airline had informed customs officers that she had the shocker before the plane landed.

“She didn’t declare it because she didn’t think she had done anything wrong. These devices can be carried legally in a bag in ­Germany if the owner has a permit.

“She’s obviously very ­security conscious after what happened to Sead and Mesut.”

An Arsenal official said of the stun gun: “This is a private matter and we will not be commenting.”
