John Obi Mikel Charged With DUI

K ShakranSenior Analyst IJanuary 26, 2009

Nigerian Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has been charged of driving under the influence after he was seen driving his Range Rover rather dangerously, the Telegraph reported.

The police stopped the Nigerian by the break of dawn on Saturday near his club's ground in London's Fulham Road, hours before Chelsea's 3-1 win over Ipswich in the FA Cup.
"We are aware (Mikel) was arrested and charged. We want to establish the facts before we comment," a Chelsea spokesman told The Sun.

The 21-year-old is summoned to appear in the court on April 3rd.

Mikel could either face one-year driving ban or be sentenced to time in jail!

Chelsea fans, rejoice!
