Northern Ireland manager arrested for 'drink-driving'
Michael O'Neill was stopped by police on the outskirts of Edinburgh on Sunday.
The manager of the Northern Ireland football team has been arrested in Scotland on suspicion of drink-driving.
Michael O'Neill was detained by police on the outskirts of Edinburgh on Sunday.
The 48-year-old former Hibernian player was driving eastbound on the A720 when he was stopped.
The Irish Football Association said it was aware of the alleged incident.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Police in Edinburgh arrested and charged a 48-year-old man in connection with drink-driving eastbound on the A720 around 12.55am on Sunday, September 10.
"He is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on October 10."
O'Neill has been a major success as Northern Ireland manager, taking the side to the last 16 of last year's European Championships in France.
He has also guided them to within a whisker of their first World Cup since 1982 after a string of impressive results in qualifying.
Both of their remaining fixtures will take place just days before O'Neill's court date.
They will play Germany in Belfast on October 5 before travelling to play Norway on October 8.
