Misbehavin’: John Terry and the Learner Driver
John Terry and his boys seem to have gotten themselves into a bit of drunken trouble late Sunday night – and Mr. Terry might be interviewed by police as a result.
At the witching hour of 4.15 am, the England captain and Chelsea star was out with a group of team-mates including Ashley Cole and Steve Sidwell. Out celebrating after the team’s win over Bolton, they were dining at the all-night staple, Vinqt Quatre on Fulham Road. A photographer waiting outside the restaurant claims the boys blocked him from taking pictures and that his moped got damaged in the process.
Serious stuff, this.
Police were also told by the restaurant staff that the Chelsea boys were rude and rowdy with the staff, and even had a food fight. Chelsea’s spokesperson, well trained in dealing with matters such as drunk and disorderly behaviour, denied that any of their players were involved in causing criminal damage.
The photog claims JT offered to pay him if he would destroy a photograph he had taken. He also says someone pulled the ‘L’ plates off his moped and threw it to the ground.
We’ve always been suckers for badly behaving boys, especially those who have more money than sense, but aren’t there different stakes at play when you’re the England captain? Should JT be at home swotting up on his knowledge of world capitals rather than getting stonking drunk and abusing learner drivers? Or is this all part of the charm that comes with the baller gig? Your thoughts Kickettes?
