Temperamental cricketer S Sreesanth, who was arrested on Thursday on charges of spot fixing, has a history of wrongdoings. He was involved in several incidents of trouble making even in Bangalore.

In November 2008, members of Elgin Apartment Residents’ Association had complained against the speedster to the Ashok Nagar police that Sreesanth and his friends, who were partying at the apartment, were playing music loud late in the night. The members had also complained to the police that Sreesanth and his friends had vandalised the apartment terrace and destroyed a portion of it. Though initially the cricketer was pulled up by the police, he was later let-off with a warning.

There were also reports that Sreesanth had got into a heated argument with a staff of a star hotel in the City over sound in an air conditioner. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) too had taken a strong objection to the cricketer’s action and conducted an inquiry into the incident.

In another incident, a complaint was also lodged against Sreesanth by a City-based software engineer Ramamurthy, at Cubbon Park police station for damaging his car while overtaking it.

The cricketer again courted trouble when he refused to oblige a request by an attendant of a Bangalore-Delhi flight. Sreesanth had come into the flight with an injured leg. Hence, the flight attendant asked him not to sit close to the emergency exit.

However, according to a co-passenger, T R Ravi Chandran, the fast bowler refused to oblige the request.
