Bosses at top fashion house Christian Dior have reportedly suspended their head designer John Galliano after he was arrested for allegedly hurling anti-Semitic insults at a couple during a night out in Paris.
The flamboyant designer was drinking at a bar in the Marais district of the French capitalon Thursday when he began verbally assaulting two strangers sitting on a cafe terrace, according to reports.

Galliano, head designer for Dior, was taken to a police station for a sobriety test. The state prosecutor recommended his release and charges were not filed. Cops later escorted the 50 year old to his home in the city.

Following his arrest, AFP reported that bosses at Dior have suspended Galliano pending the outcome of a police probe into the incident.

It comes just days before the launch of Paris Fashion Week, where couture house Dior’s show is one of the main attractions.
