Ex-England star Trevor Sinclair on assault rap
Former England footballer Trevor Sinclair has been summonsed to appear in court on charges including assaulting a police officer.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said Sinclair (44), of Victory Boulevard, Lytham, had been summonsed for alleged offences of 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. Sinclair, who played for Manchester City, West Ham United and Blackpool, and made 12 appearances for England, will appear at Blackpool Magistrates Court on December 19.
He was arrested on November 12 after police were called to a disturbance at a house in Lytham.
A 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."
