It is said that he has been accused, among other things, of ‘speeding’ on the Danish Elsinore motorway after he was clocked at a speed of 157 kilometres per hour, with the speed limit being 110.
Prosecutors have called for his Porsche Taycan Turbo S – which is worth two million kroner (£172,000) – to be seized.
The court is said ‘to not expect much resistance’ when Bendtner appears for his hearing.
However, Danish website Bt.dk have said that his lawyer has stated that her client ‘drives with a valid British driving license’.

The incident comes a few weeks after Bendtner split up with his model girlfriend of three years Philine Roepstorf.
Bendtner, who played for Arsenal between 2005 and 2014, had loan spells at Sunderland, Birmingham and Juventus before making a permanent move to German side Wolfsburg.
He has since had spells at Nottingham Forest, Rosenborg and FC Copenhagen.
Bendtner now plays for fourth-tier Danish side Tarnby FF who he joined in August 2020.
