Warrant issued on Snodgrass


snoddyA warrant has been issued for Robert Snodgrass after he failed to turn up to his trial.

The West Ham star Β is charged with driving a car while a baby was being held by a passenger.

The 29-year-old was allegedly driving on Duke Street, Glasgow, on April 17, 2015 with too many people to put in a baby seat.

Court papers claim he “did drive said vehicle whilst a baby was being carried in the arms of a rear seat passenger as there was insufficient space to fit a suitable child seat due to the number of passengers”.

Snodgrass was not at the city’s Justice of the Peace Court when the case called on Friday.

Defence lawyer Martin Black told the court “he didn’t think he had to be” when asked why his client was not present.

The Crown requested a warrant, which was granted by JP Eunice Paton.

    As they say- you couldn’t make it up. A new Hammer who has played a couple of games without a season ending injury. What could go wrong? Hey ho. Tomorrow’s news- Fonte’s car falls into a sink hole on the way to training.
