Girls Aloud Star Sarah Harding Arrested In London For Driving Offence?

7 April 2013, 09:03

The 'Call The Shots' singer is said to be facing two charges after being pulled over in the UK capital.

Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding was reportedly arrested at the end of last week for talking on her mobile phone while driving.

The 'Something New' singer has allegedly also been charged with failing to stop for police, after she was flagged down by a bicycle officer in London on Charing Cross Road last Thursday (4th April).

Sarah is said to have been pulled over several minutes later, arrested and taken to nearby Holborn Police Station, where she was charged and bailed to appear in court later this month.

"Sarah was driving in a 4x4 when a policeman on a bicycle saw her and tried to make her stop," a source told The Mirror this week. "He was trying to flag her down but she carried on a bit down the road where she was pulled over a couple of minutes later.

"She was talking to the police by the side of the road for a while before she was arrested," the source continued." Apparently Sarah was very upset when she was arrested and charged. The offences are pretty serious.

Police have confirmed the charges to The Mirror, and Sarah is now due to appear in Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on 16th April.

Using a mobile phone while driving can carry a maximum fine of £1000, as well as the possibility of losing your driving licence, while failing to stop for police can lead to a charge of up to £5000.

Earlier this week it was reported that Sarah's Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole is planning to move back to Los Angeles in the wake of the band's break-up.

Girls Aloud announced their split at the end of March after ten years together as a group.
