Salah AVOIDS prosecution for using phone whilst driving
After video evidence of Mo Salah using his mobile phone at the wheel of his Mercedes car, surrounded by mostly young football supporters, the Egyptian has amazingly avoided any further prosecution attempts against him.
In a responsible move from Liverpool FC, the incident was initially reported to Mersyside Police by the club themselves, who released a statement shortly after the incident took place, which read; "The club, after discussion with the player, have made Merseyside Police aware of the footage and the circumstances surrounding its capture.We have spoken to the player also and will deal with any follow-up internally. Neither the club or player will be making any further comment on this matter."
Despite video evidence clearly showing Salah commmitting the offence, Merseyside Police have decided to close their investigation against the Liverpool player. A statement was made on Thursday regarding the incident and conclusion of the investigation.
It read: "'We can confirm a 26-year-old man was spoken to following an incident on Arkles Lane in Liverpool on Sunday, August 12, 2018. Inquiries have taken place and there is insufficient evidence to support a prosecution and as such no further action will be taken. The man has been spoken to by officers and given advice and guidance around mobile phone use in a vehicle."
Salah has yet to kick in to form so far this season, only scoring three in eleven appearances in all competitions so far for the Anfield club.
