Banned Tevez out driving again

SOCCER PLAYERS ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW: Carlos Tevez will have some explaining to do after being spotted behind the wheel of a white Porsche Cayenne despite receiving a six-month driving ban.

MANCHESTER, England – Manchester City player Carlos Tevez could face jail after being arrested on suspicion of driving while disqualified.

Tevez, who was banned from driving for six months in January 2013, was arrested near his home near here. The striker was bailed because there was no interpreter at Macclesfield Police Station so he is to return there on March 12.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire Police said: “Police arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of driving while disqualified but has since been released on police bail.”

Tevez was allegedly at the wheel of a white Porsche Cayenne when he was stopped by police as a result of "information provided".


The maximum penalty for driving while disqualified in the UK is a six-month custodial sentence and a R68 000 fine. Courts also consider "anti-social behaviour" orders and community service.

He was banned and fined R20 000 in January in Manchester after pleading guilty to two counts of failing to furnish information relating to incidents in which his Hummer was speeding.
He also admitted to not having a proper UK driving licence.

He argued that he had not responded because he didn't understand the word “constabulary” in official correspondence. The footballer’s lawyer, Gwyn Lewis, said: “He does understand the word ‘police’ but not more complicated words.

“The word constabulary is not one that is recognised internationally, but of course police is. The correspondence was not dealt with properly and that has resulted in these offences.”
