A Premiership footballer accused of driving through a series of red lights
while under the influence of alcohol has been committed for trial.
Fernandes has yet to enter a plea on the charges
Southampton FC winger Fabrice Fernandes is charged with driving with excess alcohol and dangerous driving after police stopped him earlier this year.
Mr Fernandes, 24, of Pacific Close, Southampton, has yet to enter a plea.
District Judge Timothy Workman told him he would be committed to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court on 9 September.
A further charge of failing to stop for a constable was adjourned and will be heard at Bow Street Magistrates' Court.
Mr Fernandes, who was stopped in his black Porsche in central London at 0400 BST on 10 May, was released on bail.
