Nile Ranger Officially Charged With Drunk Driving


Nile Ranger unfortunately seems to be in trouble.

Nile Ranger – drunk driving charge

The BBC is reporting that Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger has been charged with drinking and driving, Northumbria police have confirmed.

The actual drink driving offense occurred on 11th September in the Newcastle city center, in the wee hours of the morning.

At the time, Nile was granted bail, but that was pending the outcome of a blood test, and he has today been charged with drunk driving, and the next step is that he has to appear before Newcastle magistrates on 10th November, which is three weeks today.

Alan Pardew has taken Nile Ranger out of the Newcastle first team squad, until such time as he is fully and completely concentrating on his football, and his off field behavior improves.

Nile did play for the Newcastle Reserves team on Tuesday night,  in their 3-2 win over Liverpool at Darsely Park, and he scored two goals.

Nile can still become a very good player, if he can keep his head down, train hard, and keep out of trouble in his personal life.

Comments welcome.

    35? .08 is the blood alcohol level. clearly we do different things cause a 35 (or .35 for that matter) would kill you or at least put u in a coma

    Pardew on Simpson:

    ‘He’s been a great player for us and he will be going forward.
    ‘He wants to earn a new contract and if he keeps playing like he is, there’s a good chance he will get one.’

    Not to mention the pending assault charge he has hanging over him too? Didn’t he and his mates batter some bloke unconscious (alledgedgly)? Get rid.

    @G: Yep. Outside Tup Tup iirc.

    Such a talent but he takes it for granted. For that reason he can go and f himself as far as I’m concerned. As I said earlier: can we sack him yet?

    if nile ranger needs to get his licence back get him to give me a call,i’m a driving instructor.i’d be more than happy to travel from belfast for a few days work and it wouldnt do him any harm having a extra lesson or 2.not sure if my wee vw polo would suit the footballer image though,at least it would bring him down a peg or 2!!
