Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been given 250 hours of community service after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified and without insurance. The 29-year-old entered his guilty plea in his native Spanish with the aid of an interpreter as he stood in the dock at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court. Magistrates heard that the Argentinian, who gave his full name as Carlos Alberto Tevez, has not yet got a UK driving licence, partly because he has struggled to pass the theory test, which is conducted in English. Tevez pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified and without insurance after being stopped as he left a golf club in a Porsche Cayenne on the afternoon of March 7 this year following an anonymous tip-off to police. He received a six-month driving ban at Manchester Magistrates' Court in January after pleading guilty to two counts of failing to furnish information relating to incidents in which his Hummer vehicle was clocked speeding. Kate Marchuk, prosecuting, told the court a police officer was called to the Mottram Hall Hotel and Golf Club in Cheshire at around 4pm on March 7. "There had been a call from an anonymous caller, that the defendant had driven a white Range Rover to the golf club whilst disqualified. "The officer confirmed this on the Police National Computer." Miss Marchuk said Tevez had been disqualified from driving on January 16, until May 25. Tevez, who lives in nearby Alderley Edge, did not get into the Range Rover on leaving at around 5pm, instead getting into a white Porsche Cayenne and driving off. He was stopped nearby and arrested for driving while disqualified and having no insurance. He told the officer: "I only live down the road. Two minutes." Tevez was taken to the police station and later bailed but at a second interview made no reply to police questions.
