Newcastle United star Hatem Ben Arfa is in trouble with traffic cops.

The Mirror reports Ben Arfa was ordered to appear before magistrates on four driving offences.

The French international was allegedly clocked at 110 mph in his Mercedes on a 70 mph stretch of the A696 Woolsington bypass on the outskirts of city in September.

When police pulled him over, it is alleged that he was also found to be driving with no insurance.

Five days later, on September 11 last year, the midfielder was stopped in a Volkswagen Golf, when he was again said to be driving with no insurance and vehicle incorrectly registered.

He denied driving with no insurance the second time he was stopped, in Gosforth, Newcastle.

But he did not enter pleas to the other allegations against him.
