Colchester: Peter Shilton On Drink-Drive Charge
Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton will appear in court later this month after being arrested for drink-driving in Colchester.
The 63-year-old was arrested outside the home of a female friend in Manor Road on February 24 after being found to be driving with excess alcohol in his system.
A spokesman for Essex Police said: "A 63-year-old man will appear at Colchester Magistrates' Court on March 19.''
Shilton, of Kenilworth, Warwickshire, is England's most capped player, having made 125 appearances for his country.
Shilton played more than 1,000 competitive matches for 11 different clubs including Stoke City, Nottingham Forest, Derby and Southampton, throughout his career.
A crackdown, aimed at tackling online child abuse in Essex has seen more than 40 people arrested in the last six months.
After appearing on TV, the family of missing Clacton man, Nigel Kedar, have issued an appeal.
