Commenting article: Bulgarian Football Legend Stoichkov Probed for Battery in US

Police in the US city of Chicago is investigating Bulgarian football legend Hristo Stoichkov on allegations he thrashed a Bulgarian journalist.

The news was reported Wednesday by a number of Bulgarian media, including Trud (Labor) daily, citing a Chicago police officer on duty, who says the case is being probed. The police record describes the attack as Stoichkov hitting the victim with a fist and lists the charge as battery.

Since this is not a serious crime, it is expected that the football star will be allowed to leave the US.
