Fulham have confirmed that a ‘subject’ was arrested and indefinitely banned from all club activities amid reports that Aboubakar Kamara was involved in a bust-up with a member of security.It is alleged that the French attacker had visited Motspur Park in an effort to discuss his future at the club with chief executive Alistair Mackintosh, but became violent when a meeting was denied.A police statement, as per The Guardian, read: “One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and criminal damage. He has been taken into custody in a south London police station.

A statement from the Cottagers confirmed the incident at Motspur Park on Monday but did not disclose the identity of the person arrested.”The club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday,” the club said.”The subject who was arrested is banned indefinitely from Motspur Park and all club activities.”We will refrain from further comment but will stress that we will fully cooperate with any new or continuing investigation or legal proceeding in the name of providing everyone a secure and safe working environment.”Kamara had previously been forced to train with Fulham’s Under-23s after two recent incidents saw him dropped from the senior playing group.It was only last month Kamara made headlines in the match against Huddersfield after grabbing the ball off the team’s designated penalty taker Aleksandar Mitrovic and subsequently missing the spot kick.Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri was unhappy after the incident, claiming he wanted to ‘kill’ the Frenchman for disobeying his orders.However the Italian coach forgave Kamara after he apologised to the squad and included him as a substitute for their next Premier League match against Arsenal.Kamara joined Fulham in 2017 after making the move from French club Amiens.Recent reports have linked him with a transfer to Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor after he was left out of Fulham squad for their recent league games against Burnley and Tottenham.

CALGARY — Power utility TransAlta Corp. shareholders shrugged off the interventions of a U.S. activist investor and elected the company’s preferred slate of directors at its annual meeting.All 12 recommended directors were endorsed by shareholders, including Harry Goldgut and Richard Legault, nominees put forward by Brookfield Renewable Partners whose election was a condition of its $750-million partnership deal with TransAlta.New York-based Mangrove Partners launched a lawsuit in Ontario earlier this week to try to derail the deal, after it filed and then withdrew a request for the Alberta Securities Commission to delay the annual meeting and require a separate vote on the partnership.Mangrove claims the deal was rushed, failed to properly consider other options and puts the interests of the board ahead of the interests of the shareholders.TransAlta CEO Dawn Farrell has defended the Brookfield deal as good for shareholders and insisted the company thoroughly investigated other options before signing.Mangrove and an entity controlled by Bluescape Energy Partners had agreed to join forces to employ their combined 10.1 per cent ownership of TransAlta to force change but then ended the partnership. Mangrove says it owns about 7.1 per cent.TransAlta has said it plans to spend $350 million of the Brookfield investment to speed its coal-to-gas power generation transition strategy in Alberta and will use up to $250 million to buy back shares over three years.Companies in this story: (TSX:TA, TSX:BEP.UN)
