London – John Terry’s father, Ted Terry has been charged with carrying out a racist attack on a man after an altercation in the street.

The Daily Mail’s website reports that Terry, 59, was arrested earlier this year following the incident on Fenchurch Street in London's Square Mile.

After answering bail at Bishopsgate Police Station, Terry was formally charged on Tuesday afternoon with two racially motivated offences.

He is accused of committing a racially aggravated common assault and a public order offence.

Two other men, Tudor Musteata, 47, and Stephen Niland, 36, were also charged.

They both face a single allegation that they caused a ‘fear of violence’ that was racially aggravated.

Local authorities declined to elaborate on exactly what is alleged to have taken place.

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

All three men were ordered to appear before City of London Magistrates’ Court on July 23.

It is not the first time that Terry has had a run in with the law.

Last year, John Terry, the former England captain, was cleared of racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.

Terry denied making the comments to Ferdinand during a match at Loftus Road the previous year.

The Chelsea captain was also arrested following a nightclub brawl in 2002, but was later cleared of four charges, including affray and wounding with intent.

In 2001, Terry, along with fellow Chelsea teammates were also accused of drunkenly mocking American tourists after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The rest of the Terry family also have chequered backgrounds.

In 2009, Terry's father was accused of of passing drugs to an undercover newspaper reporter, whilst Terry’s mother Sue, 55, and mother-in-law Sue Poole, 59, were cautioned for shoplifting from Tesco and Marks & Spencer.

2009 was also the year Terry was accused of having an extra-marital affair with former teammate, Wayne Bridges then girlfriend, Vanessa Perroncel.

In November 2010, Ted Terry was rushed to hospital after he was attacked by Tottenham Hotspur fans.
