Sounders midfielder Marco Pappa was arrested Sunday morning for driving under the influence and speeding and will undergo assessment by Major League Soccer’s Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program doctors, the club announced Monday.

Details of the arrest were not available and not released by the club.

Pappa is not eligible to participate in any competition until that assessment is complete, he is cleared for participation by the SABH Program doctors and MLS completes its investigation. Philadelphia forward C.J. Sapong missed three games this season following a similar arrest and then going through the program.

“We are gathering information on this matter and have been in contact with the league office, the MLS Players Union, local law enforcement and Marco directly,” Sounders general manager Garth Lagerwey said in a statement. “We will continue to work in cooperation with all involved parties and will have no further comment until more information is available.”
