Sinclair, 44, of Victory Boulevard, Lytham, is due in court charged with drink driving, assaulting a police officer, racially aggravated public order, failing to provide a specimen for analysis, criminal damage and disorderly conduct in a police station.

He is set to appear at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Police were contacted at 8.45pm on Sunday November 12 to a report of a disturbance at the former Premier League star’s home in Lytham.

Officers say they attended the address and found a man had already left the property in his car, a Tesla X60d.

A short time later officers reported they had found the driver and vehicle which had been involved in a minor collision with a woman pedestrian on Clifton Drive.

Sinclair began his career at Blackpool where he played from 1989 to 1993.

At the time of his debut in 1989, he was the club’s youngest ever player.

He has also played for clubs including Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City, and has been capped by England 12 times during his career.
