South Korean striker Kang Soo-il, currently serving a doping ban, has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, local police told Reuters on Monday.

The Jeju United forward was involved in a crash with a taxi in the early hours of Monday morning and was arrested, an official at the Uijeongbu Police Station said.

The official said Kang and his friend who was also in the car will face further investigation.

Earlier this month, Kang received a six-month ban from the Korea Football Association (KFA) after testing positive for the anabolic steroid methyltestosterone. Kang blamed the failed test on a cream he used that helps grow a moustache.
