Pele's son has been arrested on money laundering and drug charges related to his alleged involvement with drug traffickers, authorities say.
Edson Cholbi Nascimento was detained on a temporary arrest warrant in his apartment in the port city of Santos, 75km southeast of Sao Paulo, said
Kelly Cristina Pinheiro, a spokeswoman with Sao Paulo state's public safety secretariat.
The former goalkeeper spent six months in jail last year after being arrested in June in a sting operation designed to dismantle an alleged drug gang
operating in Santos. He had been out of prison since December 17 pending his trial.
