Reports in Friday's newspapers state that Stephen Lee has been arrested as part of an investigation into match fixing.
The Daily Mail quotes a police spokesman as saying: "A 35-year-old man from Wiltshire has this morning been arrested on suspicion of cheating. This follows a joint operation where WestMidlands Police have assisted the Gambling Commission, following their concerns about suspicious betting patterns."
Lee, the world no.25, has won four ranking titles and was a semi-finalist at the 2003 World Championship.
Regardless of what comes out of this case, these are hardly headlines snooker needs.
