According to Lithuanian media, the police have now become involved and taken over background investigations into the matter.
The midfielder had made 20 appearances for the national side during his playing career, with his most recent outing coming in 2019.
His last appearance for the Lithuania national team saw him play 83 minutes of their 4-1 defeat to Serbia in a Euro 2020 qualifier.
