It is not yet clear if the blood is his own or is someone else’s.
The shocking clip appears to show Guarin yelling at a policeman while his red shirt looks to have been ripped during the alleged incident.
A second video emerged shortly after on YouTube of what appears to be Guarin again being confronted and restrained by police to a gurney outside of a Medellin hospital, while reports claim the midfielder aggressively demands not to be filmed.
According to Colombian news outlet Semana, police confirmed that Guarin had been arrested and was ‘under influence of substances’ after the authorities received a call for domestic violence.

‘He physically attacked his parents, who asked for him be taken away by the police,’ general Jorge Vargas is reported as saying.
The alleged incident comes days after Guarin asked his team Millonarios for some time off due to ‘personal issues’, according to Marca.
Colombian journalist Guillermo Arango has reported that Millonarios will stand by the player and provide him with any help he needs.
Guarin joined Inter Milan in 2012 after stints at Porto, Saint-Etienne and Boca Juniors in the years prior.

Guarin joined Inter in 2012 and would make 141 appearances in his four years at the San Siro
The midfielder would go on to make 141 appearances in his four years at the San Siro before being sold to Shanghai Shenhua in 2016.
He would spend three years in China before returning to South America to sign for Brazilian outfit Vasco da Gama two years ago.
However, his stint in Brazil ended after just a year which saw him return to his home country of Colombia to sign for Millonarios in January.
