It seems Icelandic Footballer Kolbeinn Sigþórsson drank too deeply from his own horn and landed himself behind bars in Sweden after a rowdy night out.

According to Swedish newspaper Expressen, one player in the Swedish league was arrested last night. They were initially withholding the name from the public, but Fréttablaðið confirmed that the jailbird was none other than our own blond bombshell, Kolbeinn Sigþórsson. Scandal!

According to the report, Kolbeinn apparently resisted arrest around 3:00 o’clock on Friday night and subsequently spent the night in jail. The AIK football club executives have not commented substantially, just saying that the matter will be handled internally.

“Going out for fun in this way is not according to our values,” the chairman of the company told Fréttablaðið. As for whether Kolbeinn will be in the final round on Saturday, we’ll just have to wait and see.
