Man City star Tevez arrested for allegedly driving while disqualified
London, Mar 9 : Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was arrested and taken to Macclesfield police station on Thursday for allegedly driving while disqualified, and the Argentinean is now waiting to hear whether he could face a charge that could bring a possible prison sentence of up to six months.
Tevez, banned from driving in January, was stopped in a high-powered car, thought to be a white Porsche Cayenne, on the edge of the town as a result of information provided, the Guardian reports.
The forward was taken to a nearby police station for questioning before being bailed, and no bail date has been released.
A statement from Cheshire police said: "At 5.13pm on Thursday 7 March police arrested a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge on the A538 in Macclesfield on suspicion of driving while disqualified. He has since been released on police bail."
Tevez had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to supply information over incidents in which his car was clocked speeding, as well as being banned for six months, he was ordered to pay fines and costs totaling 1,540 pounds, the paper added.
Driving whilst disqualified is considered a serious offence with a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a 5,000-pound fine, and often the courts also consider community service or anti-social behaviour orders.
