Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant was caught up an alleged row at a takeaway pizza shop.
The Sun says Pennant got so hammered in a nightclub he could barely stand up.
Liverpool winger Pennant, 24, was then involved in a bust-up at a pizza takeaway - and ended up falling over.
Witnesses said he tried to ease the situation by waving his hands and slurring "calm down, calm down" before hitting the ground. One of his pals, also believed to be a footballer, was arrested for a public order offence.
The pair had been drinking in a trendy bar in Bournemouth, Dorset, before apparently going to the takeaway.
