Ronaldinho with his brother were invited to promote a charity event in Paraguay and they were lodged in a hotel when immigration officials stormed the place and detained the brothers on the grounds of possessing forged travelling documents.
Upon further investigation it was later discovered that the documents the brothers used to board their flight to Paraguay were fake and he was accused, detained and charged. The 39-year-old claimed he was unaware his credentials were fake and it was given to him by the individuals that invited him to the country.
Paraguayan authorities however refuted his claims and put Ballon d'Or winner up in prison. According to the report on UK Sun, Ronaldinho's lawyers pleaded that the Brazilian be placed under house arrest rather than him sleeping in jail.
The judge presiding over the case refused to grant their requests on the grounds that further investigations must be carried out for them to come out with a proper judgement. Ronaldinho could have been given a bail, but the judge feared that he is a serious flight risk and could leave the country thereby making the prosecution useless.
