QPR manager Harry Redknapp contests motoring charges
Tuesday 23 April 2013
Football manager Harry Redknapp could face a trial after pleading not guilty to two motoring offences.
The Queens Park Rangers manager is accused of speeding at 38mph in a 30mph zone on The Avenue in Poole, Dorset, on October 23 last year.
He has also been charged with failing to supply the driver's identity as required under section 172 of The Road Traffic Act.
Redknapp, 66, did not attend a hearing at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court on Monday where Jonathan Morrissey, defending, entered not guilty pleas on his behalf.
A spokeswoman for the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that Redknapp, who lives in Panorama Road in Sandbanks, Poole, had been charged with the two offences.
The Bournemouth Echo reported that Charles Nightingale, prosecuting, told the court Redknapp had not been able to ascertain whether he or wife Sandra had been driving the domestically-registered vehicle at the time of the alleged offences.
It said the trial could be dropped if the information is provided.
