Terry's Dad Charged For Racist Attack

John Terry’s father, Ted Terry, was charged on Tuesday with racially aggravated assault, following his arrest after an incident earlier this year.

Two other men- Tudor Musteata and Stephen Niland- were also charged in relation to the scuffle that broke out with Terry senior in London in March.

They have been charged with causing racially aggravated ‘fear of violence’.

The City of London Police have declined to give further information.

“As charges have now been brought we are unable to comment further on the nature of the incident,” a police spokesperson said.

It is tempting to suggest that ‘the apple does not fall far from the tree’, after Chelsea skipper John Terry’s own chequered racial history.

Last season he was cleared by the court, but banned by the FA, for racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender, Anton Ferdinand.

He was stripped of the England captaincy as a result.

The Terry family are no strangers to the law either.

In 2002, John was arrested but ultimately cleared after he was involved in a fight outside a nightclub.

In 2009, Ted was arrested after he was secretly filmed selling cocaine in the toilet of an Essex pub.

And in the same year, John’s mom, Sue Terry, was arrested with a friend after they were caught shoplifting from two different supermarket chains in England.

Terry is revered at Chelsea as a leader, captain and legend, and over the years his performances on the field have been heroic.

But it remains to be seen if he can eventually retire with dignity, considering the scandals that have peppered his career.
