Australian rower Booth arrested

London, England (Sports Network) - Australian rower Josh Booth was arrested early Thursday morning for an alleged incident involving alcohol and damage to a shop front.

Australian Olympic Committee chef de mission Nick Green said that he received a phone call around 3:30 a.m. London time that Booth had been detained and taken to a police station. Green said Booth also had to be taken to the hospital after fainting at the station and hitting his head.

"He has been released from the hospital this morning and is now back at the rowing accommodation and the doctor and section manager are present," said Green. "No charges have been laid but he has to go back to the police station tomorrow (Friday) where the police will investigate the matter. We understand there was alcohol involved."

The 21-year-old Booth was part of the Australian men's eight team that finished sixth in Wednesday's final.
