Manchester City star arrested and bailed over car offence

Published 5 Comments

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been arrested for allegedly driving while disqualified, and could now face a charge that could bring a possible prison sentence, reports The Guardian.

The Premier League footballer has a history of driving offences, having previously pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to supply information over incidents in which his car was clocked speeding.

Tevez was banned from driving for six months in January, and has also been ordered to pay fines and court costs that total more than £1,500.

After being stopped in a high-powered car on the edge of town yesterday afternoon, the controversial Manchester City star was taken to a Macclesfield police station for questioning, where he was later bailed.

"At 5.13pm on Thursday 7 March police arrested a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge on the A538 in Macclesfield on suspicion of driving while disqualified," confirmed a statement from Cheshire police. "He has since been released on police bail."

In 2009 Tevez was stopped by Greater Manchester Police on the M60 and found to be driving without a licence, and with illegally tinted windows. Officers impounded his car and issued him with a prohibition notice.

The South American also recently mimicked driving a vehicle after he scored twice in Manchester City's Premier League win against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
