Hamann court date set over driving offences
Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann will appear in court next month to learn his fate over a series of driving charges.
The 34-year-old German was due before magistrates in Macclesfield today after being convicted earlier this month of careless driving, failing to stop after an accident, failing to supply information to police and failing to report an accident.
Hamann, of Alderley Edge, Cheshire, crashed his £70,000 Porsche Carrera into a fence in Styal, near Manchester Airport, in October last year.
He fled and was found by police a mile and a half away and, although an officer told the court at a previous hearing that the player's breath smelled of alcohol, he was not breathalysed.
This morning's hearing was adjourned because the former Liverpool player's solicitor was not available and magistrates were stuck in traffic.
Hamann will appear at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court on October 22.
