London, Mar 30 (ANI): Troubled former England football star Paul Gascoigne has been charged with drunk-driving during his fishing trip and has been arrested twice in 48 hours for allegedly wrecking a hotel room during the trip away with a pal last month.

His friend, Michael Harvey, was accused of drink driving, driving while disqualified, having no insurance and being in charge of a vehicle while over the limit.

They will appear before magistrates in Northallerton, North Yorks, on April 16, The Sun reports.

Harvey said yesterday: "Obviously I'm denying it. I need to speak to Paul to find out what he thinks about it."

Gascoigne has battled alcoholism for years but Harvey said: "Paul's fine. He is doing all right and not drinking at the minute."

The pair had checked into the Black Horse Inn, in Kirkby Fleetham, North Yorks, to go fly-fishing at a local lake.

But following the first night they were asked to leave after Gascoigne was said to have trashed his room. It was also claimed that they tried to take logs from outside the hotel.

An off-duty cop arrested them later in nearby Leeming Bar. (ANI)
