Bendtner, 25, was allegedly driving on the wrong side of the road in Copenhagen when caught.

The Denmark international took to his Twitter account to apologise for his actions.

He wrote: "Dear friends, I was booked for a mild case of drink driving last night. It was a quiet night but I am very very sorry to all my friends and fans. It is not OK to drink and drive. I take full responsibility."

Bendtner, who is on loan from Arsenal, has failed to score for the Bianconeri in nine appearances. He is set for a return to the Emirates at the end of the season.
