The defender, who played in the club's Champions League final win, was involved in a collision in his Range Rover which resulted in a man's death.
Henry Nelson, 81, from Liverpool, suffered serious head injuries in January and died five weeks later.
A spokeswoman for Merseyside Police said a 29-year-old man from Liverpool had been bailed until 29 June.
The accident happened in the Tuebrook area of the city on 27 January but Mr Finnan, a Republic of Ireland international, was not arrested until more than two months later.
The police spokeswoman said: "A 29-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested on 11 April on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
"He was bailed pending further inquiries to appear at a police station on Wednesday, 29 June."
An inquest into Mr Nelson's death has been opened and adjourned until 4 July.
Mr Finnan, who originally comes from Limerick, started his career at non-league Welling before moving into league football with Birmingham and Notts County.
In November 1998 he was bought by Fulham for £600,000 before moving to Liverpool ahead of the 2003/04 season.
