Arsenal left-back Andre Santos was reportedly arrested by police after a high-speed chase on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Arsenal defender Andre Santos was arrested by police after a high-speed pursuit on suspicion of dangerous driving last Friday, according to reports.

The 29-year-old was reportedly pursued by officers in a 130mph chase after he was spotted driving erratically and failed to stop. The incident took place just inside the M25 motorway, nearby Arsenal's training ground in London Colney, Hertfordshire, the day before the North London club's opening game of the season against Sunderland, for which Santos was on the bench.

London Metropolitan Police issued a statement, saying: "Shortly after 9.30am on Friday August 17, a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop for police on the A1, near to Junction 22 of the M25.

"Officers' attention was drawn to the vehicle due to the manner of its driving. The man has been bailed to return at a date in mid-September to a North London police station.''
