Dani Alves ‘Signing Autographs For Fellow Inmates In Prison’
Former Barcelona and Brazil defender Dani Alves has reportedly been signing autographs for fellow inmates in prison.
Alves, 39, is in prison in Spain after being detained by local police and jailed without bail pending trial over an alleged sexual assault of a woman in a Barcelona nightclub.
The alleged victim filed a complaint earlier this month and the case remains open, Catalonia’s court system said in a statement last week.
Spanish outlet Telecinco have reported that Alves – who was denied bail by a Barcelona judge due to the perceived high risk of him leaving the country – has been signing autographs in prison.
The report said how one former inmate showed a shirt signed by the 126-time Brazil international upon leaving jail.
The unnamed inmate didn’t share a cell with Alves but got his shirt signed through another prisoner.
He also revealed how the right-back was accepted in prison and no one has so far called him a ‘rapist’.
The report went on to say how Alves has since been moved from the Brians 1 prison he was in to Brians 2 for ‘security reasons’.
Alves, 39, has denied any wrongdoing and last Friday, he appeared in front of a Barcelona judge after local police detained and questioned him, before he was then jailed without bail pending trial.
