Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has taken to social media to apologise for breaking lockdown regulations and crashing into parked cars in a drunken state.
The midfielder was said to have been leaving a party in the early hours of the morning when he reversed his Range Rover into a silver van, smashing the rear lights and damaging the bumper.
He then drove into silver C-class Mercedes and a blue Mercedes Benz before hitting the iron railing of an estate agency.
He disappeared from the scene before police arrived but not before he had an altercation with one of the residents.
One of the neighbours went onto explain the incident saying:
“The party had been going on all night. It was unbearable. The noise had only stopped a short while when, just after 8am, there were a series of almighty collisions which reverberated through the flats.”
“Outside, Jack Grealish was stood next to his car rowing with a security guard. It was strange to see an England ace looking so unkempt and dishevelled. He looked unsteady and confused.”
“There was an almighty row because Jack didn’t want to wait around but people wanted answers from him.”
After having sobered up, the Aston Villa midfielder posted an apology on his social media page going onto say:
“Hi everybody I just want to do a quick video message to say how deeply embarrassed I am about what happened this weekend.”
“I know it’s a tough time for everyone being locked indoors for so long.”
“I obviously got a call from a friend asking to go round to his and I stupidly agreed to do so.”
“I don’t want anyone making the same mistake as I did so I urge everyone to stay at home and follow the rules and guidelines of what we’ve been asked to do.”
“I know for a fact that I’ll be doing that and I urge everyone to do the same.”
“I hope everyone accepts my apology and we can move on from this and hopefully in the near future, we can be out enjoying ourselves again.”
The stunt pulled by the footballer may have put his £70 million transfer to Manchester United in jeopardy. Aston Villa also slapped him with a £100,000 fine for his antics.
