The Milan midfielder – Tiemoue Bakayoko, was apprehended by the law enforcement agents earlier this month after being misidentified for someone else, according to the police.

On July 3, the Frenchman was stopped by armed police officers as surveillance footage revealed that he was being searched and the police are saying that the cops did absolutely nothing wrong.

Although the club has formally declined to comment on the situation, they have confirmed that the 27-year-old was the one seen on the video.

Footballrover gathered that the footballer will not be taking any action regarding the embarrassing incident.

Milan Police sent a statement to CNN on Monday that revealed they had halted the wrong person while emphasizing that their actions were legitimate and that Bakayoko had not attempted to take any action.

The Police statement reads;

With reference to the video released today, related to a police check carried out against the Milan player Tiemoue Bakayoko, we underline that the check — occurred during an operation whose context justified the adoption of the highest security measures, also for self-protection purposes — was carried out in a manner that was absolutely consistent with the situation of danger.”

The statement further noted that;

Once the person was identified and his being unrelated to the facts had been clarified, the police duties resumed regularly, without any kind of complaint on behalf of the person involved. It was a misunderstanding, but colleagues behaved correctly.”

Meanwhile, the midfielder who is currently on a two-season loan from Chelsea to San Siro, will bee starting his second season there.
