Calvert-Lewin, who was absent from Sunday's loss to Wolves because of illness, was fined £900 and had three points added to his driver's license for speeding and failing to present valid identification when questioned.

It's a capital offence: his performance in London last week.

The whole team need putting in the dock.

"Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will appear at Chester Magistrates Court on Tuesday on account of speeding and failing to present valid identification when questioned."

Having been on Jury Duty, albeit a long time ago, I am not sure if it states on the available lists for Public Scrutiny what the offences are but just the name of the alleged offender or appellant, which room or court, and time.
If there are any juicy details, I will, like Arnie 'Return and Spill'!
Watch this space, folks! 🕵️♂️👀

I'm not his biggest fan but we have missed his ability in the air.

I doubt he cares it ended up being £900. Meanwhile, the likes of you and I continue to contribute to his wages, whilst he's either on the treatment table, or wandering around the pitch not giving a shit.

‘I will have a look at both the Magistrate and Crown Court lists' and, if you're not on them, you'll go shopping.

He won't have chosen to go to court, he will have been summoned because of the speed that he was driving over the limit.
My understanding is that he won't have had to attend in person but can plead guilty and accept the fine – and if he has indeed been fined £900 as reported, then that is the maximum related to his earnings.
So a young man gets fined for speeding. No big deal and no need for any challenges to his character.

You are correct, he never appeared in court but pleaded guilty through his solicitor, the prosecution offered no evidence on the charge of not providing documentation and this charge was dropped.
The magistrates congratulated Dominic, through his solicitor, on not asking for time to pay this fine. Well done, lad.

Perhaps he's had 2 inside a year, a bit like his goals.

He's subsequently pleaded guilty and has been fined the maximum £1,000 due to his earnings, reduced to £900 because of his guilty plea.
I know some will be disappointed but unfortunately there is nothing more to see here.

His insurance premium on the car is possibly more (considering his age) than many of us get in a year! I don't think I feel sorry for him, especially the way, when played, he has performed up front.
26 Posted 15/03/2022 at 16:46:06
Oh, you mean off the pitch? ;)

I agree, if true. There's a horrible creeping move towards this kind of thing, monetizing and oppressing under the hugely overplayed safety mantra – now augmented with the climate "Crisis" crap as being environmentally damaging.
I say this without knowing the specifics re Calvert-Lewin, but knowing that many 50 mph limited roads have been demoted from 60 and 70 mph for no reason of technical change or emerged safety issues.

"Yes Brent it is. £1,000 maximum given his salary but 10% off for pleading guilty!"
Shame they can't apply similar to corporate taxation.
