It must be said, for a regular, even somewhat dedicated football fan, the current coronavirus pandemic is an absolute nightmare.
Us ardent admirers of the game are now forced to stew inside our houses all day long, with nigh a football fixture to be seen in the stadiums or on the telly.
Turns out, it isn’t just the general public that has been driven up the wall by the extended break. Footballers themselves are finding it quite hard to kill time cooped up in their houses and hotel rooms.
This has led to them resorting to some pretty far-out ways to be entertained, leading to some unsavoury incidents coming to light.
One such accident involves Aston Villa headliner Jack Grealish and his compatriot, former Plymouth Argyle fullback Tony Capaldi.
Both of them are rumoured to have caused a massive alcohol and diesel-fueled rampage across Waterside in Dickens Heath.
According to a resident in the area, Grealish abandoned his car by the roadside after recklessly driving around the streets. They even smashed the nearby parked cars along the way in the wee hours of the morning.
Along with their pals, Grealish and Capaldi were completely plastered during the incident and proceeded to flee the area when locals came to investigate.
The Police have been involved and if the rumours are to be believed, Jack Grealish could be facing some heavy charges for his actions.

Grealish Shoots Himself In The Foot
What makes this situation all the more juicy, however, is the fact that just hours before his (alleged) drunken escapades, Grealish had been quite the goody-two-shoes citizen.
He uploaded a video message on behalf of the National Health Service onto his Twitter account urging the public to stay inside to help stop the spread of the disease.

The irony could not be more glaring, considering he could not follow his own advice given just a short while ago.
As of now, there has been no confirmation from any official sources about the occurrence of this accident. Yet the photos and the text messages on Twitter do make a compelling case that cannot be denied.
All we can conclude, for the moment, is that Grealish seems to have fallen on his own sword, with locals of the Solihull parish demanding that the star be brought to justice for the (alleged) damage caused.
