Just returned from seeing the film Lincoln, and my son Neil had sent me a message a couple of hours ago that Cheick Tiote has been arrested on suspicion of fraud – wonder what he’s been up to?
Cheick Tiote – arrested on suspicion of fraud
It seems that Newcastle’s midfielder Cheick Tiote has been arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to driving offences, and Cheick had his car – said to be a £75K Chevrolet Camaro – seized by Northumbria police in Benton near to the Newcastle training ground.
A Northumbria Police spokesman had this to say:
“At around 1.30 pm on Tuesday, a car was stopped on Benton Park Road, Newcastle, and a 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to driving offences.”
The investigation into the possible fraud is ongoing, and there have been no comments yet from either Cheick Tiote or Newcastle United.
According to the Guardian, Cheick is still expected to start for Newcastle tomorrow night, in the first leg of the Europa League tie with Ukrainian club Metalist Kharkiv.
By the way the film was good and Daniel Day-Lewis was unbelievable as Lincoln – Academy Award beckons for this actor for the third time?
