Arthur Melo is in the headlines again on Monday after reportedly been caught driving while under the influence of alcohol.

According to Diari de Girona, Arthur had a bit of an accident in his Ferrari when he mounted the pavement and hit a lampost in the early hours of the morning.

No-one was injured but the police did get involved and saw that it was “obvious” the midfielder was under the influence

Arthur was subsequently breathalyzed, found to be over the legal limit and charged with drink driving.

According to ESPN, the midfielder could now face a “large fine” or “the possibility of having his driving license revoked.”

It’s more bad news for Arthur who is also facing disciplinary action from the Catalan giants for failing to return to training.

The 23-year-old is due to move to Juventus once the season is over.
