I find it a little odd that he hasn't been charged with anything yet. I would have thought you would get charged with drink driving immediately if you provide a positive sample of breath, I'm no expert but don't see why there would be any need to delay it.

I'll leave my condemnation of him until he actually gets found guilty of an offence.

If he did as is alleged then he deserves to have the book thrown at him, and not because he is a mega bucks footballer, but because anyone who commits this offence deserves it.

Driving under the influence is deadly. There is enough evidence to show that not only the perpetrators suffer but also many innocent victims.

We have had one case at this club before. We don't need another.

He won't go to jail but he should get a two year driving ban and a massive fine.

Anyone found guilty of being over the limit and driving at 110mph should be sent to prison for at least a few weeks in my opinion. Then stick them in a room full of people who have lost loved ones due to similar actions of others, I doubt they would ever consider doing it again after that. There is no excuse to be putting lives at risk getting behind the wheel of a car going that speed while over the drink drive limit.

Same here dropping your best player at this point in the enquiry is beyond stupid if you ask me.

Like someone else has said though, maybe we didn't drop him before as it wasn't in the press, questions would have been asked of AI. Now he can be dropped and taken out of the spotlight so it's more likely to happen.

Best Player? He's done very little since the United game.

If this is found to be true... as a representative of WBA he tarnishes the whole club. Although it is not the fault of the club neutrals will look at this as a club issue.

You do wonder what the hell he was up to north of Manchester, allegedly drunk at 4am on a Wednesday morning.

As BH says, it is odd that he hasn't been charged with anything. Unless he refused a breath test, he would have tested there and then and either been over the limit or not. So for now, I think it's wrong to prejudge or assume anything.

It's also wrong to prejudice any possible court case, so as Oldbury says, take care about your comments, guys.

Dress it up any way you like, the fact that he's been bailed to appear means he probably called the club and they sent out a £400/hr solicitor to bring his carcase back home.

He is stupid but I do find the situation strange, this happened over a month ago so why has he not yet been charged and it only just come out in the press.

Also the day after he was arrested, 23rd October he tweeted 'In a good place #feelingblessed #GodIsGood'
Personally I don't think i'd be in a good place the day after being arrested for drink driving.

If he's guilty I don't want him associated with our football club.

If he turns out to have done this, what a grade A prat. Considering the war torn, disadvantaged background he's come from, you would have thought he'd be much more grateful and respectful of the opportunity he's been given.

But yeah, this does seem odd. Every single traffic cop show I've seen that deals with drink driving, they're charged as soon as they've sobered up.

Wouldn't go that far, where else will the goals come from?! I know what he did hasn't been clever but then the number of footballers that go out and do stupid things like this is larger than we'd like to think. If we were to banish players for committing this sort of act we'd be watching powerleague every week.

Allegedly 110 miles an hour while drunk . What if somebody had been killed . He's got the money to pay a driver . So if guilty I hope he gets the book thrown at him .

on the first point it's possible that agents/management have probably had some form of injunction out on it stopping it from hitting the press. he hasn't been charged yet because his court date is next month which is where he probably will be charged.

as for the tweet the following day who knows what goes through footballers heads these days

I'm an advocate of no drink being allowed while driving, there should be a 0% limit with a small allowance for having a wine gum or something  ::)

That being said, If he was "drunk" but a tiny smidge over the limit that is one thing, bad, but not horrific. But if actually drunk that's just dreadful.

Either way, call a taxi or a driver, you earn a load!

Where else the goals will come from is irrelevant. Any player doing what has been alleged must be punished.

Don't know all the facts but could be that elected for a blood test, which takes time for blood results to come back. He would have been bailed to return after the blood results are received  and then he would be charged with an offence. Then he gets bailed to appear at court depending on the reading.
