The model has been the victim of internet pranksters

Katie Price has been left fuming after internet hoaxers hacked into a Twitter account and announced that she’d been arrested.

PoliceUK – which has over 4,000 followers and claims to be ‘Reading, Watching and Tweeting from police news’ – posted that Katie, 33, had been detained by officers after being involved in a car crash.

‘Model Katie Price arrested by police following crash near her home,’ PoliceUK Tweeted.

But the furious mum of 3 was quick to hit back and assure her fans that she wasn’t in any trouble.

‘How can I of been arrested when I’ve been at my familys having dinner @policeuk you are sick making these rumours up back off,’

.

PoliceUK later apologised to Katie after realising that an internet troll had managed to get access to their account.

‘Would like to give our appologies to @misskatieprice it seems our account was hacked, Katie Price is safe and well and has not been arrested,’ they Tweet.
