John Terry's father, Ted, charged with carrying out racist attack


Ted Terry, the father of Chelsea captain John Terry, has reportedly been charged with carrying out a racist attack on a man after a scuffle in the street.

The 59-year-old has been charged with two racially motivated offences when he answered bail at Bishopsgate Police Station. The Daily Mail reports he was arrested earlier this year following the incident on Fenchurch Street in London's Square Mile.

Mr Terry, who is accused of committing a racially aggravated common assault and a public order offence, is due to appear at City London Magistrates Court on July 23. Two other men, Tudor Musteata, 47, and Stephen Niland, 36, were also charged following the incident March 22. City of London Police, which is responsible for the inquiry, would not elaborate on its statement in which it said “three men have today been charged with racially aggravated offences”.
