Arsenal defender Andre Santos was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, London police said.
According to The Sun, the 29-year-old defender, who signed for the Gunners last summer, was seen as driving erratically and weaved in and out of rush-hour traffic in his Maserati GranTurismo supercar.
Santos, who was on the bench against Sunderland, was finally stopped near Arsenal's training ground at London Colney, with the incident taking place on Friday, the eve of the Gunners' season opener in the English Premier League.

Cops found it hard to keep up with the Brazilian, after he sped away reaching speeds of 130 mph in the £110,000 ($173,600) car, The Sun added.
"Shortly after 9.30 a.m. on Friday August 17, a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop for police on the A1, near to Junction 22 of the M25," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.
"Officers' attention was drawn to the vehicle due to the manner of its driving.
"The man has been bailed to return at a date in mid-September to a north London police station."
Meanwhile, on a brighter note, Gervinho revealed there is a real sense of belief in this year's Arsenal squad and has backed his team to end their wait for silverware. "There's great belief that we can contend for trophies," the Ivorian told the club's official website. "This is important, not only for the players, but also for the club in general.
"There is real hope that we can bring trophies to Arsenal. Every player is conscious of this and we're going to do all we can to achieve it this season.
"We've had a few changes at the club and there's a good spirit among the group -- we're all enjoying playing together. Everyone is happy and it goes without saying that the group is up for having a good season."
Arsenal have already signed Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla, with Nuri Sahin expected to join the Gunners soon, and the Ivory Coast international believes the attacking options available to Arsene Wenger will help the team to achieve some much-needed success.
"I know Olivier Giroud personally from the French league," he said. "He's a good striker, he's really impressed me and has made a good impression generally.
"These new signings will help us move on and I think they are a good set of strikers.
"We've got lots of options in attack, but every team is different, every team has its own players and every team has got its own qualities up front.
"But the most important thing is that we've got a good strikeforce, we have to concentrate on ourselves, take care of our own business and I think that our attacking options can really make a difference this year."
