Geri Halliwell's man held over alleged drug possession

Monday February 1, 2010

Henry Beckwith, long-term boyfriend of Geri Halliwell, has been arrested on suspicion of carrying drugs.

The 31-year-old, heir to a £400m fortune, was held by officers near Raffles nightclub in Chelsea at the weekend.

"We can confirm a 31-year-old man was found with a quantity of white powder in Paulton Square where he was arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A drug," a police spokesman stated.

Henry was later cautioned after being taken to Chelsea Police Station.

Geri has been dating him for ten months and sparked rumours of a possible engagement when she was seen visiting a church in Hampstead last month.
