Grealish, 25, flouted government guidelines to remain at home after agreeing to visit a friend during the early stages of lockdown in this country.
Police were called to the Dickens Heath area of Solihull to reports a Range Rover had crashed into two parked cars, with pictures emerging online of the Villa skipper at the scene in slippers and a bright blue hoodie.
The midfielder later said he was ‘deeply embarrassed’ by the incident – less than a day after launching a video appeal for people to stay at home during the Government-enforced lockdown.

And in an interview with The Guardian, he said: “I knew straight away that I had to come out and apologise myself, which I wanted to do; I didn’t want to hide behind a club statement.
“I am old enough now and mature enough to know that I’d done wrong.
“I know I am a footballer but I’m still human and we all make mistakes and straight away I knew I’d made a mistake. I’m also a role model as well to a lot of people out there, especially young children who might look up to me.
