A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm after a car "drove along the pavement" outside a pub.

The incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning at around 1.30am outside the Crown Inn pub in Ferry Road, Rye.

The Argus has been told by an eyewitness that the driver had been in a different pub before his blue Nissan Note was seen “driving along the pavement”.

A 55-year-old who was arrested in connection with the incident has been bailed pending further police enquiries.
