LYON, France - Olympique Lyon's French international Sidney Govou was arrested and found five times over the French drink-driving limit, police said on Monday. Govou was arrested in Lyon while driving during the night after Ligue 1 leaders Lyon's 0-0 draw at home with Olympique Marseille in a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday, a Lyon police source said. A test showed the striker had 2.6 grammes of alcohol per litre of blood, which is more than five times over the French legal limit of 0.5 grammes. The player, whose driving licence was immediately confiscated, was held until he sobered up then released on Monday morning and now faces a court hearing, the source added.
