Barcelona’s Former Player, Douglas Pereira Dos Santos Arrested for Illegal Use of Firearm
Breaking news from Brazil confirms that former Barcelona right-back player Douglas Pereira Dos Santos has been arrested for the alleged illegal use of a firearm. Reports from ‘GloboEsporte’ suggest that the former footballer shot into the air in a car park at the Clubes Esportivos Sul marina, and was arrested shortly after.
The news of his arrest comes as a shock to many, especially considering his past role in Barcelona’s winning team. Many may not remember Douglas’ ‘Cule’ past, but he was in the squad that won La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the prestigious Champions League back in 2015. His time with the team, though momentous, was extremely short-lived, as he only played eight games throughout his two-year tenure in the squad.
The circumstances surrounding Douglas’ arrest are perplexing, and they warrant further investigation. The former Barcelona player is reported to have fired into the air on a car park after a boat ride at the Clubes Esportivos Sul marina in Brasilia. It is alleged that the gun he used to fire the shot was registered in his mother’s name, a Glock, which he reportedly hid in a forest. The police are now trying to locate the weapon, and the investigations continue.
The legal implications of Douglas’ actions are yet to be determined, but he is now facing a complaint filed by the Criminal Justice Prosecutor’s Office in Brasilia. It will be interesting to see what the justice system decides in this case.
