Ex-England star Trevor Sinclair appears at court on drink-drive and assaulting a police officer charges

FORMER England star Trevor Sinclair has appeared at court to face charges including assaulting a police officer.

The Match of the Day pundit, 44, was arrested last month on suspicion of drink driving and common assault after a pedestrian was found injured following a crash.

Sinclair, of Lytham, Lancs, appeared at Blackpool Magistrates' Court today to face six charges.

They include driving while unfit through drink, assault on a police officer, racially aggravated public order, failing to provide a specimen for analysis, criminal damage and disorderly conduct in a police station.

Ex-winger Sinclair spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth.

The pundit who played for Manchester City, West Ham and Blackpool and made 12 appearances for England, was arrested on November 12.

Police were called to a disturbance at a house in Lytham at about 8.45pm.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: "Officers attended the property and found a man had already left the property in his car, a Tesla X60d.

"A short time later officers found the driver and vehicle which had been involved in a minor collision with a woman pedestrian on Clifton Drive.

"Mr Sinclair was also arrested on suspicion of assault and a separate criminal damage matter but will face no further action in respect of those matters."
