Police and stewards reportedly became involved following the Hammers' 3-1 defeat by Wolves at Upton park, while Benni McCarthy saw his strike partner dragged away by his team-mates.

"I thought Coley knew the guy at first as they were speaking normally," said the South African. Eventually I saw some other players go back out and drag him inside. Maybe what went on got to him and he reacted the wrong way."

Goals from Kevin Doyle, Ronald Zubar and Matthew Jarvis condemned the Hammers to a fifth consecutive defeat, leaving them three points above the relegation zone.
