IPSWICH Town chiefs were today closing ranks after it emerged that star defender Titus Bramble was held in a police station after a late-night out.

They refused to say whether the £10-million rated defender would be disciplined after a night out in Colchester.

Bramble's agent Jonathan Barnett said he had been returning home in a taxi from a night out in Colchester when he fell asleep on the back seat.

"The taxi driver couldn't wake him – that was all – and he took him to the police station," he said.

"He wasn't arrested, he was just held until he woke up in the early hours of the morning," said Mr Barnett. "They just wanted him to wake up."

No one was prepared to say whether he had been disciplined – but he is still in the Town squad for tomorrow's match at Tottenham.

They would only repeat the comment from manager George Burley, who said yesterday: "I'm not aware of any players being charged or cautioned."
