Police detain a PSOE councilor from Santa Cruz de Tenerife after a fight



The socialist councilor in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council, José Ángel Martín, was arrested this Wednesday afternoon after an altercation at the El Tablero soccer field, in that city.

The first versions, still to be officially confirmed, point out that José Ángel Martín and other people from the Socialist Party went to visit these sports facilities and record a video of the state they are in, specifically the bathrooms, for which they asked the manager to would open There they were rebuked by two people, apparently a man and his son.

One of them, according to the first versions, attacked the councilor and he reacted by pushing the older of the two, making him fall to the ground. In the fall, the man suffered a double bone fracture in one of his legs, which is why he was taken to a hospital. Another version, also unofficial, suggests that Martín pushed hard on a door and the injured man’s leg was trapped between it and the frame, causing fractures.

As they were considered seriously injured, the Police proceeded to take a statement from José Ángel Martín as a detainee. He will remain this Wednesday night in the cells awaiting clarification of what happened with the testimony of the people who may have witnessed the brawl and possible images on video or surveillance cameras.

The socialist councilor has also presented part of the injuries, but since they are considered minor, no other arrest has been made.

The Socialist Party issued a statement late at night announcing that, as soon as it can contact councilor José Ángel Martín, it will request his resignation as a candidate for the Santa Cruz City Council “if the facts are confirmed” as they begin to be known.
