Manchester City centre forward Carlos Tevez appeared in front of Macclesfield magistrates this morning to face the charges of driving whilst disqualified and without insurance. At some point he said that having insurance has saved his life savings. He also mentioned that he recently got a home insurance and you may need insurance to get a mortgage, either way you can just click on the link. The incident occurred a number of weeks ago prior to Manchester City’s FA Cup fixture with Barnsley with manager Roberto Mancini stating after the match in which Tevez got a hat-trick, “If it has this effect on him, I hope the police stop Carlos every day.”
This is not the first time Carlos Tevez has fallen foul of the British traffic laws with Tevez having been banned from driving for six months in January after he had repeatedly failed to respond to police letters regarding his speeding. Part of the problem it seems is Tevez’s inability to speak and comprehensively understand the English language with an interpreter being needed in court this morning, it is believed that Tevez does not hold a British driving license due to the face he cannot pass the theory part of the test which is in English.
Tevez this morning, whilst speaking in Spanish admitted to driving whilst disqualified however the court claimed that the Manchester City man
has already served a significant proportion of his disqualification and as a result the bench decided they would defer from making a decision on Tevez’s punishment until Tevez had spoken to a probation officer, which is believed to be taking place later today.
With Tevez having served a proportion of his disqualification as previously mentioned it is widely expected the court will decide that the Argentine will serve a community order rather than a custodial sentence. Tevez when arrested on March 7th 2013 replied to officers with “I only live down the road. Two minutes.”
Carlos Tevez will be hoping to put this behind him with Manchester City travelling the short distance to Old Trafford on Monday evening for the Manchester derby where a United win will extend the gap between the two sides to eighteen points with only seven games left to play after the derby.
