Swann charged with drink driving

LONDON: England cricketer Graeme Swann has been charged with drink driving, police said Monday.

The Nottinghamshire off-spinner, ranked the third best Test bowler in the world, was stopped near his home in the West Bridgford area of Nottingham, central England, on April 2.

The 31-year-old will appear before magistrates in Nottingham on August 16.

Swann has been charged with "driving a motor vehicle when his alcohol level was above the limit," a Nottinghamshire Police spokeswoman said.

In May, Swann was named England`s cricketer of the year.

He was also named the Man of the Series on England`s last two tours, to South Africa and Bangladesh.
