Police have confirmed a man was arrested at Paul McCartney's concert in Melbourne last night.

As 3AW reports, a male called in to the popular The Rumour File segment to allege he was kept in police custody until early this morning, after he was arrested and escorted from AAMI Park during the show. 

update: man alleges he was "bashed" by police during arrest

"After the first song I moved over to the walking aisle to have a bit of a dance and then all of a sudden I was arrested," the man said.

"I was escorted out of the building, I was cuffed, made to look like an absolute idiot and was put in jail until 2AM this morning."

Victoria Police have since confirmed that the punter was arrested and escorted out of the venue, however they say it was due to his intoxicated behaviour, not because he was dancing in the aisles. 

McCartney will next perform in Brisbane on Saturday night; click on theGuide for more details.
