RYESGADE, Denmark, March 13 (UPI) -- Nicklas Bendtner of London's Arsenal soccer team is accused of rubbing himself against a taxi in Denmark and calling the driver a "little whore."

Bendtner has not played in a game for the Arsenal since Feb. 2, but played for the national team of his native Denmark in last week's game against England. He allegedly was drunk when he and two friends got into a Ryesgade cab, kicked the vehicle's radio loose and took some of the driver's personal belongings, the Guardian in London reported Thursday.

When the driver asked the men to return his belongings, Bendtner allegedly became angry and had to be restrained by his friends outside of the vehicle. He allegedly unbuttoned his pants, rubbed himself up against the taxi, whipped the vehicle with his belt and called the driver a "little whore,"

The driver called police, but it was unclear whether officers spoke to the player.

"I've had drunks and alcoholics in my cab in Copenhagen over the last 25 years, but I've never experienced anything like this," the driver told the Danish newspaper BT.

A spokeswoman for Bendtner declined to comment on the incident and Arsenal officials said they are looking into the allegations.
