LONDON, England -- Liverpool defender Steve Finnan has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following a car crash in which an 81-year-old pedestrian died, British police said on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland international, who played in Liverpool's astonishing Champions League triumph last month, was first arrested in April over the incident on January 27.
The 81-year-old Liverpool man died from head injuries five weeks later.
"A 29-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested on April 11 on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving," said a spokeswoman for Merseyside police.
"He was bailed pending further inquiries to appear at a police station on Wednesday June 29."
Finnan started his career at non-league Welling before moving into league football with Birmingham and Notts County.
In November 1998 he was bought by Fulham before moving to Liverpool ahead of the 2003/04 season.
