The glamorous escort who became the youngest ever chief executive of a football club last September has been arrested at an away match.

Carolyn Still, 29, was given a caution for using threatening words and behaviour during non-league side Mansfield Town's match at York's Bootham Crescent stadium last night.

The attractive blonde, who got engaged to Mansfield's wealthy chairman two weeks after her appointment, was detained by the police midway through the play-off semi-final, which ended 1-1.

Beauty and power: Carolyn Still, 29, was given a caution for using threatening words and behaviour during her club Mansfield Town's play-off semi-final against York City

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: 'A 29-year-old woman from Retford was arrested at 9pm on Wednesday 2 May 2012, on Grosvenor Terrace, York, for using threatening words and behaviour.

'She was given an adult caution before being released.'

Miss Still's fiance, John Radford, issued a statement which read: 'Our dedicated and hard working CEO was involved in a incident in York toward the end of last night's game when she went to the aid of one of our first-team players, who was being ushered out of the stadium by a number of police officers.

'Disappointed by how our player was being treated, she was reprimanded for a verbal retort to a police officer.

'This incident has been blown totally out of proportion over a light-hearted, hot-headed quip in defence of our player.

'I commend the police for their common sense in dealing with the matter quickly and no charges have been made against our CEO. COYS (Come On You Stags).'

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police confirmed that a non-playing Mansfield first-team player was escorted from the ground by officers shortly before Miss Still's arrest.

At the time of Miss Still's appointment last autumn, she and 45-year-old Mr Radford said the move had nothing to do with their friendship and would not confirm they were a couple.

Miss Still would only admit that she had known the Doncaster-based businessman for a couple of years and that this would be useful in her work.

Mr Radford, who has been married once before, took over the Blue Square Bet Premier club a year before her appointment.

A spokesperson for the Nottinghamshire team, also known as The Stags, later confirmed that Mr Radford and Miss Still were a couple before he made her boss.

Miss Still is said to be a former escort, who went on dates with male customers before working for top fashion companies such as Bulgari and Gucci.

According to The Sun, Miss Still was working for two escort agencies and was said to have met male punters 'at different times of day and night'.

The newspaper claimed that the new CEO was signed to an agency called Lucy Brookes and posed for risque pictures on the internet under the name 'Luella'.

It is believed that Miss Still first became an escort when studying for her politics degree, as a way of paying her way through university and to pay off debts.

After working in London as an account manager she moved to Leeds and joined crisp makers Seabrook's before reportedly returning to escorting in 2009.

Sources claim that Miss Still then signed up to one Britain's biggest agency called McKenzie's, which hit the headlines in 2007 when Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly hired five girls from the company for one night.

Her fiance Mr Radford made his millions after founding Doncaster insurance brokerage One Call Group, which employs more than 200 people and has a turnover of £50million.

Mr Radford's empire also includes Maltese insurance underwriting firm One Insurance Ltd.

A lifelong fan, he pledged to invest £500,000 in Mansfield Town when he took over in September 2010.

Miss Still is now dealing with the challenge of bringing success back to the team, whose 77-year stay in the Football League came to an end in 2008.

'I want to wake sleeping fans with a lot of different initiatives by liaising with them and finding what they want,' she said.

'We have a fantastic team both on and off the field and I am pleased to accept this role during a time when there appears to be a real buzz around the place.'

Her appointment has been compared to that of West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady, star of The Apprentice who at the age of 23 was made managing director of Birmingham City Football Club.

'I do see a correlation,' said Miss Still. 'Karren is steely, determined and, at the end of the day, she turned around a football club that wasn't doing very well that is now doing extremely well.'

She added: 'There's no doubt that having a 29-year-old female in the role will attract publicity to the club.'

I looke dat that second picture and immediately thought "What's wrong with her face, she looks like someone's switched her off"

And then realised the first two replies were exactly those sentiments!
