Andre Santos was arrested and bailed by police last Friday on suspicion of dangerous driving. The BBC reports that the Brazilian was taken into police custody and released to appear again at a North London police station in mid-September.
The police say, “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.”
The Sun goes large on the more dramatic elements of the story, saying there was a 130mph chase with Santos weaving in and out of traffic before he was stopped not far from the gates of the Arsenal training ground in his ‘super car’.
They say he could face up to two years in jail if found guilty.
Without any further verified information than that provided by the police, it would probably be wise to take The Sun’s version of events with a pinch of salt, but either way it looks as if Andre has some explaining to do.
