Aston Villa star Jack Grealish charged over driving offences in Solihull during lockdown

ASTON Villa footballer Jack Grealish has been charged with driving without due care and attention in Solihull, and failing to stop at or report a collision.

The Premier League young star Grealish is accused of the offences in Waterside, Dickens Heath, Solihull, on Sunday March 29.

Reaction to the incident prompted a public apology from him on social media after he was accused of ignoring lockdown restrictions.

West Midlands Police said today: “An investigation was launched after we responded to reports of a car hitting parked vehicles and the driver fleeing on foot.

“The 24-year-old from Barnt Green, Worcestershire, has been postal charged to appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court on 25 August.”
