Posted Tuesday, February 23, 2010 by PA

Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar has been charged with drink driving, Merseyside Police confirmed on Tuesday morning.

The 27-year-old was arrested early on Sunday morning, only hours after Everton's impressive 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

A police spokesman said: "He was arrested at the junction of London Road and Lime Street and later charged with drink driving and failure to comply with a traffic sign."

South Africa international Pienaar, who joined the Toffees from Borussia Dortmund in 2007, will appear at Liverpool Magistrates' Court on March 9.
