"Two former England footballers will not be charged over the taking of a luxury private cab they admitted driving off in on a night out, police have said.
Officers said the owner of the car did not want to press any charges against the pair over the taking of the car. The ex-footballers were told this before they were due to answer bail on Tuesday.
Lee, from West Ham, east London, played for Newcastle United for 10 years and was capped for his country 21 times."
The last time I saw the rather excessive gated Lee household it wasn't in West Ham, and I do know that he was rather embarrassed by this whole story, and equally oblivious to it, particularly as he was asleep in the back of the limo at the time, whilst Barton was having a pee behind a chip shop. The local constabulary by all accounts found it very amusing and were more interested in autographs, I suspect Mrs Lee might not have been so delighted!
