Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will reportedly be the subject of an urgent investigation from club officials into an alleged drunken episode in his native Denmark, following revelations that he went "beserk" at a taxi driver on Tuesday night.

Bendtner is reported by Danish tabloid BT to have threatened at a taxi driver in Copenhagen at the same time Arsenal were in Champions League action away at Bayern Munich, in an episode which also included whipping the cab with a belt and hurling expletive-filled insults at the driver.

The 26-year-old was supposed to be recovering from a knee injury during a short trip home, but after this latest misdemeanour looks further than ever from first-team action, at a time when the Gunners are short of options in attack.

Arsenal will demand an explanation from the maligned forward when he returns from Denmark later this week, according to, before even considering Bendtner for first-team duty again this season.

Despite negotiating with a string of clubs including Crystal Palace last summer Bendtner surprisingly stayed at the Emirates, but has featured sparingly to say the least in the final year of his Arsenal contract.

Wenger has started Bendtner in just four matches this season in all competitions, with a return of two goals including a crucial late strike against Cardiff City in the Premier League on New Years Day.
