    Default Victor Chandler is arrested?

    From http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv..._author_id=345
    Victor Chandler, one of Britain's best-known bookmakers, is understood to be one of a group of bookies arrested during the Arc de Triomphe meeting at Longchamps on Sunday for illegally taking bets.
    Chandler stayed overnight in a suite at the fivestar George V Hotel just off the Champs-Elysees. His wife answered the room's phone and when asked whether her husband had been arrested on a gambling charge, she responded: 'Not exactly, you'll have to talk to Victor.'

    a bit more (less sensational) detail from that report ...

    Victor Chandler's PR spokesman Neal Wilkins, first asked for a comment on Sunday evening, said he still had no 'concrete news' 24 hours later before issuing a short statement, which said: 'Four people from Victor Chandler were questioned by French police on Monday in respect of various aspects regarding entertaining at Longchamps. They were subsequently released without charge.'
