Cheryl Cole’s brother in ‘car theft and crash’ soupApril 14th, 2009 - 5:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 14 (ANI): Pop star Cheryl Cole’s troubled brother Andrew Tweedy found himself in soup one more time, after he stole a car and crashed it badly.
Tweedy and the Audi car’s owner Lee were drinking at a mutual friend’s house when the incident took place.
According to reports, Tweedy took Lee’s car keys, ran away with the vehicle, and later sent the owner a message telling that the vehicle was with him.
“Lee, I have taken your car, sorry mate,” the Sun quoted the message as reading.
The paper further reported that upon crashing the car, the panicked Tweedy begged Lee not to inform the cops, as he would ask his celebrity sister to bail him out of the mess.
Lee, who was shocked to see the condition of his car, gave a nod to Tweedy’s pleas and decided not to inform police if he pays for the damage.
“When I saw my car I was devastated. All the tyres were popped, the wheels were smashed to bits, the wing and the bumper were hanging off. It was a total mess,” Lee said.
“He threw away the keys in panic and I can’t get into the car. He begged me not to tell the police,” he added.
However, tired of taking care of Tweedy’s mistakes, Cheryl decided not to bail him out this time and her brother was left helpless.
Lee finally decided to inform the police about the incident.
Tweedy has more than 70 convictions, and was jailed for 6 years in 1996 for a stabbing. (ANI)
