Pelé´s son is arrested

Edson Cholbi Nascimento, 35, son of famous football player Pelé, was arrested by the Police, for "association for drug traffic".
Edson, who is known as "Edinho", is son of Pelé and Rose, first wife of the player. He was a somewhat famous goal-keeper of Santos, the team of Pelé, during the 1990s.

The police say that investigations were conducted over 8 months, and revealed that Edinho was part of a gang which distributed drugs in the city of Santos.
Edinho says that he was just an addicted to marijuana, not a trafficker.
Edinho was involved in another incident a few years back: he was participating of a street race (forbidden in Brazil), and his car killed an assistant; he is still on trial for this accident.

Pelé visited Edinho on jail. He said that maybe he had been working too much, and neglected the education of his son. Pelé is also father of a couple of twins, aged 3, from his second marriage.
