According to media reports from Bucharest, residents of the building contacted police following a disturbance which left glass entrance doors to the block damaged.

The 29-year-old was found face down on the floor and handcuffed after becoming "agitated" during an argument with officers and residential staff at the block.

A police source, quoted in the Romanian media, said: "Footballer Gabriel Tamaș was in an advanced state of intoxication."

Tamaș was in his native country for an international friendly against Trinidad and Tobago next Tuesday.

West Brom spokesman have confirmed that they are aware of the incident and will be investigating the player's actions.

Tamaș was banned from the national team two years ago following another late-night drinking session with Adrian Mutu.

And if the CCTV footage is anything to go by, Tamaș may never play for his country again.
