Tiote Called To Account
The latest high profile football player to be hauled before the courts is Cheick Tiote.
A combination of players ever more powerful motors and/or extra problems caused by an increase in players/drivers from abroad, has helped exasperate problems.
It was back in February when Cheick was stopped by police near the training ground and his car seized, with the player accused of using a fake Belgian driving licence to get a UK one.
He has now been bailed to appear at Newcastle Crown Court in July, with the court finding that a Magistrates Court were unable to deal with such a charge as using the false identity document.
In short the five charges Cheick Tiote faces are;
Fraud by false representation.
Possessing an ID document that was false and that he knew or believed to be false, to get a Belgian driving licence.
Providing false information in order to obtain insurance.
Driving his Chevrolet without a licence.
Driving without third party insurance.
