Dembélé’s uncle arrested in Barcelona for showing false documentation

Malick Dembélé was arrested this Friday by the Urban Guard. He is the uncle of the FC Barcelona footballer Ousmane Dembélé, with whom he lives with a friend from ‘Mosquito’, and has been involved in a strange situation. First, because the electric car in which I was driving on the Ronda de Dalt has caught fire, an unusual event; and later, because he has presented false documentation, which is why the Urban Guard has detained him, according to information published by ‘El País’.


Act. a las 01:18


The events took place around 7:00 p.m. in one of the main arteries of the Catalan capital. The engine of his vehicle has started to spark and several drivers have alerted him and pulled him out of the electric car, remaining on the shoulder. The vehicle has finally caught fire and has had to be shut down by firefighters.

It was then that the Guàrdia Urbana arrived, which logically asked for the documentation. And they have found that the photograph did not coincide with Ousmane Dembélé’s uncle. Later, he showed his original passport, but had already given reasons to be detained by the police authorities.

Suspicion from police sources

According to the information of ‘El País’, the reason for having presented in the first instance some papers that did not correspond could be due, in the opinion of police sources, to the accumulation of traffic fines, many for speeding and the intention to hide your identity. Because of this suspicion, they began to check if he had enough points on his driving license to be able to circulate.

The forecast was that, once he took a statement, Malick would be released.
