Jack Grealish Hits Back At 'Rubbish' Article About Driving Charges

Jack Grealish Hits Back At 'Rubbish' Article About Driving Charges

Jack Grealish has hit back at the Sun newspaper and claimed the outlet 'lied' about his failure to apologise following the incident which led to his driving ban.

In March, at the beginning of lockdown, Grealish was forced to apologise for breaking the lockdown rules after he was caught leaving a party in the early hours of the morning.

On Tuesday he was banned from driving for nine months and fined £82,499 after crashing his Range Rover in the incident, following the party.

The Aston Villa captain hit two parked vehicles in the incident and, on Wednesday, the Sun ran an article that claimed the England international hadn't apologised to the owner of a van the player hit.

Speaking to the newspaper, 73-year-old Reginald Woodcock said, "I don't follow Villa - none of them. If that's the way he wants to live his life, that is up to him, but footballers are overpaid.

"There was a little bit of damage. I don't know who dealt with it. I didn't pay for the repairs."

However Grealsh took to Twitter to refute the claim that he hadn't apologised for the incident and called on the outlet to not 'print lies.'

Barcelona Told To Buy Jack Grealish Who Would ‘Absolutely Rip It Up’ At Nou Camp

Following his day in court, West Midlands Police revealed the footage of the incident, where Grealish hit the two vehicles, along with a second incident of carless driving.

In the now infamous moment from March, which came just a day after the 25-year-old had been on social media telling people to stick to lockdown laws, the player can be seen running to his car and reversing straight into a van before driving off. He reverses to return and hits a car.

Grealish exchanged details with the respective owners of the vehicles but had left by the time officers arrived, meaning he was not breathalysed.

There was at least some light relief before Grealish was charged at the courthouse earlier this week, as the Villa captain attempted to avoid the press.

The player's car arrived at the court which attracted the press and cameramen but he wasn't in the car and actually arrived on foot from the other side.

Unfortunately the ploy didn't work as the press realised and turned their attention to Grealish as he was walking inside.
