Benjamin Mendy ‘having meltdown’ in prison

Benjamin Mendy IN prison

Manchester City defender, Benjamin Mendy, has been having a meltdown in prison.

Mendy mistakenly believed he was going to be kept in a VIP wing.

The footballer has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault and is currently on remand in HMP Altcourse.

The 27-year-old was said to be shocked that he would not be allowed home, as he was instead transported to the Category B jail in Liverpool.

Upon arrival, Mendy was informed that he would be kept on the VP wing for vulnerable prisoners.

But according to The Sun, Mendy misheard and assumed that meant he would be taken to a VIP wing for celebrity figures and was in dismay when he realised that was not the case.

Mendy is charged with three counts of rape in October 2020 and with the sexual assault of a woman in early January this year.

He is also charged with raping a woman earlier this month.

A charge of breaking bail conditions appeared on the court list but was withdrawn in court.

It had been alleged he breached conditions in August, after being released on July 26.

Fourteen reporters were in court for the hearing, which was delayed for the arrival of a French interpreter.
