Carlos Tevez charged with new driving offences

Carlos Tevez, the Manchester City striker (pictured), has been charged with driving while disqualified and without insurance, Cheshire Police have confirmed.

The 29-year-old Argentinian was arrested near his home in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, last Thursday.

He answered bail at Cheshire Police's custody suite in Middlewich yesterday where he was formally charged. He was further bailed to appear at Macclesfield Magistrates Court on April 3.

Tevez arrived at the police station at around 4.10pm in a black Mercedes people carrier, which had its windows blacked out.

The vehicle, and a silver Mercedes saloon, swept through the security gates and into a sectioned off area of the building.

The Argentine star was allegedly at the wheel of a white Porsche Cayenne when he was held by police on Thursday.

He had received a six-month driving ban at 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.

Tevez did not attend the hearing but was represented by his solicitor, who told the court the footballer failed to respond because he did not recognise the word 'constabulary'.
