Eubankheld over protest.
The showman was originally arrested after crashing his huge truck into a delivery van, while trying to block the gates of Downing Street to protest against the military occupation of Iraq.
He was taken to Charing Cross police station, where a blade was allegedly found during a search.
He was released on bail last night and must report to a police station at a date yet to be confirmed.
The bizarre sequence of events began when the former world middleweight champion failed to get arrested after parking his lorry, which bore the slogan: ``Tony Blair military occupation causes terrorism'' outside Downing Street.
A police officer refused to arrest Eubank, who sounded his truck's horn for up to a minute,instead issuing him with a ticket for careless driving.
Half an hour later,Eubank swung his truck into Downing Street,crashing into the van.
