Two men were charged last week near Mesut Ozil’s home in Highgate.
The incident on Thursday night saw Ferat Ercan, 27, of Highgate and Salaman Ekinci, 27 from Tottenham arrested by Metropolitan Police officers.
They were taken to a nearby police station and charged under Section 4a of the Public Order Act.
The section of the act covers intentional harassment, alarm or distress.
Both the German international and his Arsenal team mate Sead Kolasinac were victims of an attempted carjacking in Platts Lane, in Hampstead weeks before.
