Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish charged over lockdown crash
England and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has been charged with driving offences after his car crashed during the coronavirus lockdown. The 24-year-old Aston Villa captain is charged with hitting parked cars before fleeing the scene in Solihull on Sunday 29 March. Grealish faces charges of driving without due care and attention and failing to stop at the scene.
Jack Grealish will be due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on the 25th of August 2020. West Midlands Police previously said they were called to reports a Range Rover had caused minor damage to two vehicles in Waterside, Dickens Heath. The force said the driver had left his details with a member of the public before leaving on foot.
The England international was caught breaking lock-down rules during the lock-down declared by the state due to the coronavirus pandemic. The player is a major target for Manchester United, should he be found guilty he will spend some time behind bars or pay a huge fine. For now, he is still focusing on playing, he was in their goalless draw against Sheffield United which has raised lots of arguments following an error made by the goalline technology. Goalline technology failed to function well after a Sheffield United ball crossed the line but it was not awarded goal before there no signal given to the referee.
