Aston Villa and England midfielder Jack Grealish has been charged with a driving offence near his club’s training ground.

The Three Lions ace is now accused of four motoring charges allegedly committed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Grealish is due in court on Tuesday in connection with an incident days into the first national Covid-19 lockdown in March.

He is charged with careless driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.

Prosecutors claim he crashed his Range Rover into a parked car before leaving the scene in Dickens Heath.

The 25-year-old had “stupidly agreed” to go to a friend’s house during lockdown when the incident happened.

Days later Grealish issued a video message on Twitter in which he said he was “deeply embarrassed”.

Details of the Villa skipper’s alleged fourth driving offence emerged in court documents relating to Tuesday's hearing.

They show he was charged with driving without due care and attention on October 18 this year.

The offence was allegedly committed on the M42, the A446 and on a road where Villa’s training complex is located.
