PLAYERS: Carlos Tevez
Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified. The Argentina international, who was banned from driving for six months on January 16, was arrested on Thursday near his home in Alderley Edge, Cheshire. He was later bailed pending further inquiries. A spokeswoman for Cheshire Police said: "At 5.13pm yesterday police arrested a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge on the A538 in Macclesfield. "The man was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified and has since been released on police bail." The Argentinian star was banned by Manchester Magistrates in January after pleading guilty to two counts of failing to furnish information relating to incidents in which his Hummer vehicle was clocked speeding. He also admitted not having a proper UK driving license. Tevez, who did not attend the hearing, denied through his solicitor that he was driving on two occasions when the car was caught speeding. The first offense took place in Morecambe, Lancashire, on March 28 - the night he played for City's reserves against Morecambe Reserves. The court heard the car was clocked doing 39mph in a 30mph zone and Tevez failed to respond to letters sent to him by police on April 3 and May 4. The second incident took place on May 8 when the car was seen at 66mph in a 50mph zone in Crewe, Cheshire, and he again failed to respond to letters from the police about it. The court was told he failed to respond because he did not recognize the word constabulary. His solicitor Gwyn Lewis told the hearing: "He does understand the word 'police', but not more complicated words. "The letters are written from Cheshire Constabulary and the word police doesn't appear on it anywhere." Failing to provide identification carries six penalty points and under the totting up procedure he was disqualified. He was also ordered to pay a total in fines and costs of £1,540. Tevez was allegedly at the wheel of a white Porsche Cayenne when he was held by police yesterday as a result of "information provided". He was taken to a nearby police station for questioning before being bailed. No bail date has been released.
