Ex-Man United star Chris Eagles arrested for 'being drunk and asleep in his car outside girlfriend’s home'
EX-Man United player Chris Eagles was arrested for being drunk and asleep in his car outside his Hollyoaks star girlfriend’s home, a court heard.
Cops say they discovered the winger, 35, slumped over the wheel of his luxury Audi and nearly three times the limit at Jennifer Metcalfe’s house at 3.15am.
He split from fiancee Danielle Mitchinson, 30, last October before quickly moving on with her pal Jennifer, 37, who plays Mercedes McQueen in the soap.
Eagles dozed off in his car after getting no answer at her address in Altrincham, Gtr Manchester, the court was told.
Cops were called and prosecutor Nicole Bridgeman told Manchester JPs the engine was on, his seatbelt was buckled and it seemed he had been about to drive off.
But Jeremy Spencer, defending, said: “The engine was on purely to get his phone charged.”
Eagles, of Bowdon, Gtr Manchester, denies being drunk in charge and faces a trial.
He played for United 17 times before moving to Burnley in 2008.
He is currently without a club.
