German Soccer Club President Arrested

German police said on Tuesday they had detained the president of first division German soccer club TSV 1860 Munich on suspicion he took a bribe in connection with the construction of a new stadium in northern Munich. Bavarian police said they had arrested 64-year-old Karl-Heinz Wildmoser and his son during a raid at the Bundesliga club. "They are suspected of breach of trust, tax evasion and taking bribes," a spokesman for Bavarian state criminal police force told Reuters. Police said they had also searched offices of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for evidence. The stadium, which is to be used by both clubs, is expected to cost around €300 million ($370.98 million). It will host the first game of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
