Croatian International Arrested For Drink-Driving


Brazilian-born Croatian international Sammir has been arrested on the weekend for drink-driving, reports daily newspaper Vecernji list.

The 25-year-old midfielder, who made his full Croatian debut against Macedonia in October last year, was stopped by police in the early hours of Sunday morning in the Croatian capital Zagreb just hours after he helped his club side Dinamo Zagreb to a home league win over Slaven Belupo.

Sammir now faces a lengthy spell without his licence after he recorded a 0.76 blood alcohol level. The legal limit in Croatia is 0.50. It is not the first time Sammir has been in trouble with the law, he has spent time in the cells for drink-driving in 2011. He was also sent home from training at his club after arriving drunk in 2012. If Sammir will also be punished for his latest incident by Croatia coach Igor Stimac remains to be seen.
