Andrea Dossena, a man Liverpool once shelled out £7million for, has been arrested on suspicion of shoplifting in Harrods, the Daily Mail reports.
The 33-year-old, who now plies his trade with League One strugglers Leyton Orient, was arrested at the Knightsbridge store on Tuesday.
Dossena, whose crowning moment for Liverpool came when he scored the winner against Real Madrid in the Champions League, was later bailed.
He also netted four days after that strike against Real back in March 2009, lobbing Edwin van der Sar away at Manchester United in a 4-1 win.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: ‘Police arrested a 33-year-old male and a 31-year-old woman on April 7 on suspicion of shoplifting at Harrods.
‘They were taken to a west London police station.
‘Both the man and woman have been bailed to a date in late April, pending further enquiries.’
The 31-year-old woman is believed to be Dossena’s girlfriend.
Dossena has been capped by Italy on 10 occasions and also played for Sunderland under Paolo Di Canio and Gus Poyet at the back end of last season.
He was heralded by Rafa Benitez on arriving from Udinese back in 2008, but made only 13 Premier League starts for the club.
Dossena has appeared 13 times for Orient this season but has found life tough in the third tier.
