Ex-Arsenal striker charged for asault

Ex-Arsenal striker charged for asault

11 Oct 2018, 18:45

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has been charged with violence after an incident last month with a Copenhagen taxi driver.

Bendtner, who plays for Norwegian outfit Rosenborg, was arrested in September after being reported to the police by a taxi driver. He was released while the driver underwent surgery for a broken jaw. The driver has been charged with throwing an unknown object towards Bendtner and his girlfriend without hitting them but he is protesting his innocence, the driver's lawyer Mette Grith Stage told Reuters.

The striker's lawyer Anders Nmeth was not immediately available to comment but he has previously said the player denies the charges. Bendtner, 30, played for Arsenal nine years and has represented Denmark 81 times, although his career has been littered with media reports of drink-fuelled escapades,

He missed out on selection for this year's World Cup due to injury and is out of the Nations League clash with the Republic of Ireland on Saturday.
