ASTON Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been linked to a police investigation into an incident where a Range Rover crashed into parked cars in Solihull.

Pictures posted by a Dickens Heath resident on Twitter appear to show Grealish, 24, wearing a blue hoodie and one black slipper, speaking with onlookers to a crash.

West Midlands Police said they were called to Dickens Heath on Sunday just before 10am, where two parked cars suffered minor damage.

Officers confirmed the driver of a Range Rover left his details with a member of the public before walking away from the scene.




Hours before details of the crash surfaced on social media, the Aston Villa star put a video appeal on his own channels urging fans to stay at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

Onlookers told national media Grealish has told the car owners he would pay for any damage.


Images of a dented bumper on the £80,000 Range Rover were also uploaded.

West Midlands Police confirmed two vehicles were hit, the force said: “We were called to Waterside, Dickens Heath, just before 10am yesterday (29 March) to reports that a Range Rover had crashed into two parked cars in the street.

“The driver left his details with a member of the public at the scene before leaving on foot.

“Arrangements have now been made to obtain more details around the circumstances of the collision from the driver.
