Cops said ex-England and Man City star Barton was in custody after visiting a police station.

He was said to be furious at seeing one of his players sent off in a 4-2 League One defeat on Saturday.

Stendel is said to have called Merseysider Barton “a f****** scally”.

It is claimed Barton used offensive words about Stendel’s nationality before allegedly lashing out.

A steward and a cop stopped Barton’s BMW from leaving the ground.

Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow called Barton “foul” in a tweet that was then deleted.

Police said: “Officers investigating an incident at Barnsley FC on April 13 have arrested a man on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and racially aggravated assault.

“He attended at a police station and remains in custody for questioning. Enquiries are ongoing.”

Fleetwood have said: “We are currently establishing the facts.”

Barnsley have lodged a complaint to the Football League and Football Association over the alleged bust-up. Barton was jailed for affray in 2008.
