STRASBOURG, France — Sochaux's American international striker Charlie Davies was caught speeding at 190km/h (over 110 miles/hour) last Saturday night, police in the Jura district of eastern France revealed on Friday.
Local newspaper Le Progres reported that the 24-year-old, who was driving an Audi Q7, had had his driving licence confiscated.
Almost a year ago to the day, Davies was involved in a fatal car accident near Washington, D.C. in the United States that took the life of a female passenger.
Davies sustained serious injuries including a lacerated bladder, fractured right tibia and femur, a fractured elbow, facial injuries and bleeding on the brain.
It cost him a place in the US squad at last summer's World Cup in South Africa and he is still to return to professional action for Sochaux.
Davies joined Sochaux in the summer of 2009 but has played just eight games for the club to date, scoring two goals.
