helski striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.
The Icelandic international was stopped in the early hours of Sunday morning in Surrey.
Scotland Yard said:
"At 5.20am on Sunday on the A3 southbound near Esher, officers stopped a car due to the way it was being driven. The driver, a 26-year-old man, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol.He was taken to a south London police station and has since been bailed to return on a date at the end of March."
This is not Gudjohnsen's first brush with controversy since moving to Chelsea from Bolton Wanderers for £4 million back in July 2000. Alcohol was involved when he and other Chelsea players, including John Terry and Frank Lampard, were fined two weeks' wages and forced to apologise for their behaviour after insulting American visitors during a drinking session in the bar of an hotel near Heathrow shortly after the September 11 terrorist attacks. He has also confessed to running up gambling losses of £400,000 over a five-month period, while his private life made the tabloids when a Norwegian model accused the father-of-two of ending a three-month affair when he discovered she was pregnant. A sweet boy.
