Newcastle's Tiote charged with driving offences

Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote has appeared in court charged with five offences, including using a false identity document and fraud, reports BBC News. The 27 year old was stopped by police on 12 February near the club's training ground on suspicion of fraud in relation to driving offences.

The Ivory Coast star is accused of using a fake Belgian driving licence in a bid to obtain a UK licence.

Newcastle magistrates bailed the player to appear at crown court in July.
