Anton Ferdinand walked into a police station on Wednesday and accepted his arrest for missing a court date.
The Sunderland defender failed to appear at Newcastle Magistrates Court on Monday for a driving offence hearing.
A warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest without bail.
Ferdinand was quick to claim that there had been a 'misunderstanding', issuing a statement through his club on Tuesday night.
He then walked into Pilgrim Street police station in Newcastle city centre on Wednesday morning and was arrested.
His case was put before city magistrates, who adjourned the case until 27th October.
At a previous hearing Ferdinand was convicted of driving while using a mobile phone and now faces a ban as he already has nine points on his license.
The charge relates to an offence committed on the morning of 13th July when Ferdinand was spotted using his phone while on Newcastle's Central Motorway.
He was travelling to Newcastle International Airport to catch a flight ahead of a pre-season friendly.
