Reports: Former Premier League winner & Chelsea star arrested for drunk driving

English Premier League winner with Leicester City and current Chelsea outcast Danny Drinkwater has been arrested for drunk driving after being involved in a ‘really nasty’ crash. 

The incident reportedly took place in Greater Manchester where the former Leicester midfielder crashed his Range Rover after leaving a charity event. The Sun talked to one of the sources present at the scene, who said, “Danny’s been partying like mad recently, but hopefully this will be a wake-up call telling him to slow down.”

Cheshire Police made a statement on the incident as well: “Shortly after 12.30am we were called to a collision in Ashley Road in Mere. We arrived at the scene and found a black Land Rover estate car had collided with a wall.

“There was one man and two women, thankfully they just received minor injuries. A 29-year-old man from Nether Alderley was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. He is currently in custody assisting police with inquiries.”

Drinkwater moved to Chelsea in 2017 but hasn’t been able to cement his place in the squad. He hasn’t made a single Premier League appearance this season.
