Five men, aged 22 to 31, had been arrested on suspicion of affray at the scene of the crash in Battersea on Saturday.

He remained in custody on Monday night for questioning.

A number of people were injured when a car was driven at them “during an altercation” in Lombard Road, police said.

Officers were called at about 11.15pm to reports of a fight breaking out.

A man in his 20s suffered a broken leg and another suffered a head injury. Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Several other people were treated for minor injuries, Scotland Yard said.
