Phil dowd French State TV Report That Interpol Investigating Arsenal/Newcastle Draw Denied

The Referee, as well as Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky, are under suspicion.

Breaking: France State TV is reporting that Interpol, the International Police Agency, are investigating the Arsenal/Newcastle draw from the weekend, centering in on odd betting patterns. The alleged investigation includes Arsenal winger Tomas Rosicky, whose foul was allegedly the cause of the second Newcastle penalty. Also under investigation is referee Phil Dowd. Arsenal will allegedly make a statement on this tomorrow. For more info, see the original French report ( http://tele.premiere.fr/Zapster/Un-incroyable-match-de-foot-plonge-au-coeur-d-une-enquete-judiciaire). Also, Gabriele Marcotti’s twitter feed has more information on this breaking story. (@Marcotti on Twitter).

UPDATE: Interpol has denied this report. It seems this that report was totally bunk. For more, see: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/arsenal/8308192/Interpol-deny-investigation-into-Newcastle-Arsenal-game.html
