The England FA had started a investigation on Tuesday concerning a poor refereeing decision made by Mike Dean during the Gunners match against London rivals Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw, but what made the caught the attention of many is when the centre referee refused to show the Eagle's midfielder, McArthur a red card after he committed a foul against Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka.
It is reported according to the Mirror that Mike Dean refused to listen to the VAR instructions and award McArthur a red card during the first half of the match, and that has led to a decision of him being banned from officiating for a period of one week.
The harsh tackle led to Mikel Arteta taking a hard decision of substituting the Englishman with Albert Sambi Lokonga, where they went ahead a conceded two goals but thanks to Alexander Lacazette's last minute equaliser to earn Arsenal a point.
