Tiote Arrested On Fraud Charges – Expected To Start Tomorrow

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?

Comments welcome.

    First!?? Can’t be?? Wow I am so proud-NOT. Anyway this Tiote situation is an odd one. I did not expect another of these until the summer after the Coloccini fiasco.

    Ps. Good of you to mention that Lincoln film Ed I wanted to see that one 🙂

    Lincoln was OK. Daniel Day Lewis was great though.

    What kind of fraud would it be if it pertains to “driving offenses”? Driving with someone elses license? Driving with no insurance on the car?

    fraud related driving offences are rather vague. He could be using a relatives driving license, lied on some documentation , dishonestly fail to disclose information

    Whatever Tioti’s supposed to have done is surely between him, the police & of course the Toon who I have no doubt are following the situation closely, & until the club or the player or his representatives make a statement about it, speculation is absolutely pointless
