Last September, 29-year-old Carolyn Still became the youngest CEO in English football when she took the helm at Conference side Mansfield Town. Two weeks after her appointment, she was engaged to club chairman John Radford (this handsome devil), and it has emerged that she used to work as an escort under the name "Luella."

Still now finds herself in trouble with the authorities after being arrested during Mansfield Town's crucial Conference semifinal first leg at York city  Wednesday night. Says a statement from North Yorkshire Police (via The Sun):

"A 29-year-old woman from Retford was arrested at 9pm on Wednesday 2 May 2012, on Grosvenor Terrace, York, for using threatening words and behaviour.

"She was given an adult caution before being released."

It's not entirely clear what an "adult" caution may entail in the context of a former escort, and one may wonder why Still was arrested on a neighboring street to York's Bootham Crescent Stadium at 9 p.m., precisely the kind of time she should have been inside the ground cheering her team (which drew 1-1, incidentally). York City director Sophie Hicks told BBC Radio York that "the occasion got to [Still]," and that "she was a bit distressed in the stand and did leave the game early." While the comments may have sounded a little condescending and sexist if they were not spoken by a fellow lady in football, they may just be a euphemism for "she was pretty hammered."
