BOXING champ Wadi Camacho claims he was grilled for 12 hours after London police confused him for a TERRORIST.
The former Commonwealth cruiserweight champion was arrested outside of the O2 on Wednesday morning after taking some video of the arena.
The incident happened at around 9.30am after he had taken his daughter to her nearby school, with Met Police saying they were responding to reports of a man acting suspiciously.
The dedicated daddy, who regularly took his daughter to big-fight press conferences and let her play with his belts, missed picking her up from school as he was banged up.
The East London ace, who retired in September with a 21-9 record claims to have had his phone confiscated and explained his plight on Facebook.
He said: “I took my daughter to school then went to Canary Wharf.
“Took some video like I do off (sic) the O2 arena of the site that was a beautiful day.
“Next thing I knew I was surrounded by police and security and got arrested for suspected as a terrorist!
“I spent 12 hours in the police station, they have confiscated my phone.
“I am OK but the investigation is still going ahead OMFG”
Camacho, nicknamed the Macho Man, suffered a loss in his highest profile fight, against the Anthony Joshua-managed Lawrence Okolie in March.
And the southpaw hung up his gloves six months later after a defeat to Deion Jumah at London’s York Hall.
A Metropolitan Police statement said: “A man who was arrested in east London on suspicion of terrorism offences has been released on bail.
“The man, who is in his 30s, was arrested on Wednesday 2 October on suspicion of collection of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism under section 58 of the Terrorist Act.
