Jack Grealish Charged With Fourth Motoring Offence
England Midfielder Charged With ‘Failing to Stop at the Scene of the Accident’ During Lockdown Breach Earlier This Year
Grealish is set to appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, following previous charges regarding a motoring incident in March earlier this year.
West Midlands Police confirmed in June that Grealish had been charged with three offences, including failing to stop at the scene of an accident, connected to an incident during lockdown on March 29 this year.
The March incident saw Grealish charged with driving his Range Rover carelessly at the scene in Dickens Heath, near Solihull. He was also charged for failing to report the accident, in which damage was caused to a Citroen van and a Mercedes.
Court documents issued ahead of the hearing show Grealish has also been charged with driving without due care and attention on October 18 this year.
West Midlands Police have confirmed a further charge had been brought relating to the October date.
The latest allegation sees the England international accused of driving without due care and attention on the M42, the A446 and on Bodymoor Heath Road, the site of Villa’s training complex.
Following the first incident in March, Grealish released a video message on Twitter in which he said he was “deeply embarrassed”.
In the message, Grealish said he had “stupidly agreed” to go to a friend’s house during the coronavirus lockdown.
Ironically, less than 24 hours before that incident, Grealish had launched a video appeal for people to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
