Paul Flowers, the former chairman of Britain's Co-Operative Bank, was arrested as part of a drug investigation after he was filmed buying crack cocaine by a newspaper, a person with knowledge of the matter said.
Flowers, 63, was arrested yesterday, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the investigation was confidential.
West Yorkshire Police said in a statement that a 63-year-old man had been detained in a “drugs-supply investigation.”
