Sunderland fine Bramble for bringing club into disrepute

Sunderland centre back Titus Bramble has been fined and reprimanded by his club following an investigation. The defender was arrested in September on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug.

The allegation of a drug related offence has been dropped but that has not stopped Sunderland from taking action.

A club spokesperson has issued an official statement: "Sunderland AFC has confirmed that following a full investigation, defender Titus Bramble has been fined and given the maximum sanction permitted for bringing the club's name into disrepute.

"The club can also confirm that the allegation of a drug related offence has been dropped and that he has tested negative for all banned substances, as he has done in all previous drug tests carried out throughout his career.

"Sunderland AFC is unable to comment further at present."
