Former Tour de France victor Jan Ullrich has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a prostitute in Frankfurt, police say.

Now in custody, Ullrich, 44, was "under the influence of alcohol and drugs" during his arrest, said prosecutor Nadja Niesent. Ullrich was arrested in the early morning at a luxury hotel in Frankfurt. According to reports, several grammes of a "white substance" were found in the room.

"An investigation is underway for attempted homicide, assault and battery, possession of unsafe 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 guest had quarrelled with a woman escort who was staying with him, in the course of which he is suspected of physically attacking and injuring her", police said in a statement, adding that the alleged victim "had to undergo medical treatment for her injuries".

"She alerted the hotel staff and they called police". Mr Ullrich said he was only trying to talk to his neighbour.

Ullrich told Germany's Bild newspaper in an interview this week that he had marriage problems and was emotionally stressed after his wife had chose to separate.

"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. I have done things as a result that I very much regret".

Ullrich's latest woes came a week after he was detained for 24 hours in Spain for allegedly forcing his way into the home of his neighbour, German actor Til Schweiger, and threatening him. In 2013, Ullrich admitted he had also received blood doping. He also told me that he had a prescription for cocaine'.
