Arsenal's Bentdner faces a dressing-down from Wenger over alleged drunken incident

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bentdner faces a dressing-down from manager Arsene Wenger and a club fine for an alleged drunken incident in Copenhagen earlier this week, it is understood.

The 26-year-old is reported to have threatened a taxi driver during an incident in the Danish capital on the evening Arsenal exited the Champions League to Bayern Munich in Germany.

Wenger is understood to be aware of the incident, in which it is claimed Bendtner unbuttoned his trousers and rubbed against the taxi, and will speak to the striker.

Bendtner has not played for the Gunners since February 2, but did start for Denmark in the Wembley friendly against England last week.

He spent spells on loan at Sunderland and Juventus in recent seasons and is poised to leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.
