MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been banned from driving for six months after failing to respond to police letters regarding two speeding offences.
At a hearing in Manchester Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, officials said the Argentina forward didn't respond because he didn't properly understand the letters. The 28-year-old Tevez also admitted he did not have a proper UK driving license, but said he was not driving when his car was caught speeding.
In addition to the driving ban, Tevez has been ordered to pay a total in fines and costs of 1,540 pounds. In September 2011, the former West Ham and Manchester United forward was fined 60 pounds and received three penalty points on his license after admitting speeding in his Bentley.
