The Brazilian full-back was caught for dangerous driving last weekend, which has been confirmed by the Metropolitan Police.
“Shortly after 9.30am on Friday Aug 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,” said a spokesman, published in The Telegraph.
“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.”
The Gunners have confirmed that the matter will be dealt with internally, with Santos receiving a warning.
“The player and club are co-operating with the police regarding this matter,” said a club spokesman.
“Arsenal Football Club expects the highest standard of behaviour from all its employees and is taking this allegation extremely seriously.”
