London – Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was handed 250 hours of community service, banned from driving for six months and fined £1 000 (R14 000) for driving offences

Tevez (29) pleaded guilty at Macclesfield Magistrates’ Court to driving while disqualified and without insurance, the Press Association reported today.

The Argentina striker was arrested at the start of March and released on police bail.

Tevez, who was banned from driving in January, was stopped by police while driving in Macclesfield near Manchester.

He had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to supply information over incidents in which his car was speeding.

Then he was banned for six months and ordered to pay fines and costs totalling £1 540 (R21 000).

His legal team told the court, in January, that their client did not understand the word “constabulary” on official letters from the police.
