Taxi For Tiote

Taxi For Tiote

Following on from a story we brought you in February, Cheick Tiote has appeared in court.

The Ivorian is charged with using a false Belgian driving licence and four other offences.

Tiote is accused of using the false licence as a form of ID and is also charged with committing fraud by using the alleged false document to get a UK driving licence, as well as being accused of making a false statement to obtain insurance by claiming that he held a full driving licence without points and driving his black and white Chevy without a licence or insurance.

Tiote was joined in court by a French interpreter.

The case was then sent to be heard at Newcastle Crown Court as the charge of possessing a false identity document could not be heard by magistrates. The other matters were linked to that charge, the court heard.

Tiote has been granted unconditional bail and will appear at the Crown Court on July 5.

Tiote, who lives in Jesmond, had to be driven to and from court in a taxi.
