Tevez charged with driving offences
Footballer Carlos Tevez has been charged with driving while disqualified and without insurance, police said.
The Manchester City striker was arrested near his home in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, last Thursday.
He answered bail at Cheshire Police's custody suite in Middlewich where he was formally charged. Tevez was further bailed to appear at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court on April 3.
In a statement, the force said: "Cheshire Constabulary has charged a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge with offences of driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.
"The man was arrested on the A538 in Macclesfield at 5.13pm on Thursday, March 7, and later released on police bail. He answered bail today at Middlewich Custody Suite and was formally charged. He will 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 which followed close behind, swept through the security gates and into a sectioned-off area of the building. The vehicles departed about an hour and 20 minutes later.
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' 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.
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.
