LONDON - Arsenal defender Andre Santos has been banned from driving for a year after admitting to speeding at up to 145 mph (234 kph).

The Brazil international last month failed to stop as he was pursued by police and wove between lanes on a busy motorway near to Arsenal's training ground, north of London.

He evaded officers in his black Maserati before being pulled over and arrested.

Santos pleaded guilty on Thursday at Hendon Magistrates' Court in north London to driving without due care and attention.

As well as the driving ban, Santos was ordered to pay 3,600 pounds ($5,830) in fines and costs.
