BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — British police have arrested a football fan after pages were torn out of a Quran and thrown during a game.

West Midlands Police say the incident happened at the second-tier League Championship game between Birmingham and Middlesbrough on Dec. 7.

The force says the un-named 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.

He has since been released on police bail and banned from attending any football matches while the investigation continues.
