A police investigation is underway after an incident in which a Range Rover crashed into parked cars on Sunday morning, allegedly involving Aston Villa star, Jack Grealish.

Pictures emerged on social media appearing to show a damaged white Range Rover, and the footballer, wearing a blue hoodie and slippers, on a street in Dickens Heath.

West Midlands Police said they were called to Waterside in Solihull just before 10am, where two cars had suffered minor damage.

They added that the driver left his details with a member of the public at the scene, before leaving on foot. Police say the driver will be spoken to in due course.

It comes just hours after the Villa captain, who is tipped for an England call up, posted a video appeal urging people to stay at home to help fight coronavirus.

Jack Grealish himself took to Twitter on Monday evening (30 March) to apologise for his actions, saying he was embarrassed by what happened over the weekend.

He said he "stupidly agreed" to visit a friend, despite the Government's restrictions on movement during the coronavirus crisis.

Aston Villa also released a statement on Monday saying their captain would be fined.

Aston Villa is deeply disappointed that one of our players ignored the Government’s guidance on staying at home during the Coronavirus crisis.
