Former Tour de France champion Jan Ullrich was arrested early on Friday and is in police custody for allegedly attacking an escort at a Frankfurt hotel.

"An investigation is underway for attempted homicide, assault and battery, possession of risky goods, but the prosecution does not now see any serious indication of attempted murder ... and [therefore] reason to place him in pre-trial detention", she added, although a judge will decide this question Friday.

The assault took place at a luxury hotel after Ullrich got into an argument with the prostitute, and according to the victim, physically assaulted her.

Ullrich was under the influence of alcohol and drugs when police detained him on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, spokesperson Carina Lerch confirmed.

Ullrich, the only German cyclist to ever win the Tour de France, is in police custody following the arrest early Friday morning. Mr Ullrich said he was only trying to talk to his neighbour.

The woman needed medical treatment but police said no more details would be given on her health while they are still investigating.

Schweiger told Bild that Ullrich 'had nearly become a family member but when his wife left him he started taking amphetamines: he would only sleep for two hours.

"The separation from Sara and distance from my children, whom I have not seen since Easter and have barely spoken to, have had a great effect on me", said Ullrich.
