Alves moved to new detention center for security reasons

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Dani Alves has been transferred to a new detention center because of security reasons after being accused of sexual assault. Catalan officials say the new detention center has “smaller residential modules” where it is easier to guarantee the safety and coexistence of inmates. Authorities say the type of crime that Alves is being accused of was not taken into consideration in the decision to transfer him. Alves spent three nights at another facility that holds about 200 inmates. The new one accommodates about 80 detainees including convicted prisoners and others awaiting trial.
