England soccer star Grealish admits to 2 driving offenses

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — England soccer player Jack Grealish has pleaded guilty to two driving offenses at a court hearing. The first came in March during lockdown in Britain when a witness said he found the Aston Villa captain slurring his words after crashing his car. Grealish admitted to driving without due care and a separate offense of careless driving. He did not appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court. The court heard that a day after publishing a video message on Twitter urging people to stay at home to save lives and protect the National Health Service, Grealish was driving a car that hit two parked vehicles in a residential estate at 8:40 a.m.
