Premier League - Tevez laughs in face of court appearance

Carlos Tevez has cocked a snook at the British legal system as he ridiculed his impending court appearance with a goal celebration at the weekend.

The Manchester City striker scored twice in the league leaders' 5-0 demolition of Aston Villa, each time celebrating by running to the side of the pitch and miming steering a car - a reference to his upcoming appearance in the dock over a speeding offence.

Tevez's car was snapped speeding in Morecambe back in March on the day that the Argentine striker played in a reserves match.

The 28-year-old is accused of failing to respond to documents sent to him by police following the incident, with authorities pursuing him for failing to disclose who was driving rather than for speeding.

He will appear in court on November 26, "in connection with an allegation of failing to provide identification following an allegation of speeding," Lancashire police confirmed.

If convicted, Tevez would receive six points on his licence in addition to the three he received last year for speeding in his Bentley Continental GT. A different car is involved this time round, according to the Manchester Evening News.
