Six British Soldiers 'Attacked New York Cop'

Six British soldiers have been arrested in New York after an off-duty NYPD officer was allegedly beaten up and robbed outside a bar.
The Royal Regiment of Scotland soldiers reportedly became embroiled in a row after travelling to Manhattan to play in a rugby match against the NYPD.
Police said three or four men lashed out in the early hours of Friday morning when the officer started chatting to a woman who was with the troops.
One soldier is accused of grabbing the policeman's mobile phone and a chain around his neck when he attempted to call 911, the Daily Record reported.
The alleged altercation occurred outside the Mercury Bar in the Murray Hill area of Manhattan. The soldiers were arrested when police arrived at the scene.
One of the soldiers has reportedly been charged with robbery and assault. The other five have each been charged with a single count of assault.
The soldiers may face discharge if they are found to have breached the Army's code of conduct.
An NYPD spokesman said: "On Friday 30th at 4.40am in front of Mercury Bar, 493 3rd Avenue, an off-duty officer was punched and robbed by three or four males.
"The off-duty officer called 911 and officers responded. Six arrests were made in regards to the incident."
The Ministry of Defence said any soldier who fails to meet Army standards may face disciplinary proceedings.
A spokesman said: "We are aware of an incident in New York involving some British soldiers.
"This is a matter for the NYPD and it would be inappropriate to comment while there is an ongoing investigation.
"All those who are found to fall short of the Army's high standards will face disciplinary action, up to and including discharge, if appropriate."
