Man City’s Tevez hit with driving ban

Carlos Tevez has been banned from driving for failing to provide information when he was stopped for speeding in Lancashire.

Carlos Tevez has been banned from driving for failing to provide information when he was stopped for speeding in Lancashire.

The Manchester City striker was stopped by police for breaking the speed limit in Morecambe on 28 March.

He had been in the town playing in a reserve team game.

The striker's solicitor Gwyn Lewis told the court Tevez accepted he had not provided identification, which carries a punishment of six penalty points, and as a result was liable for disqualification, due to the "totting up procedure".

The court agreed with a request from Mr Lewis to impose a temporary ban on the striker, who did not attend court, until a second offence of failing to produce a full UK driving licence was dealt with.

Sentencing for both offences will take place at Lancaster Magistrates on 20 December.
