FILE - In htis March 23, 2010, file photo, FC Sochaux soccer player Charlie Davies, of the United States, jogs during a training session at the Auguste Bonal stadium in Montbeliard, eastern France. American forward Charlie Davies said he was not the driver of a car stopped for going 125 mph last weekend, but told French police he was to protect a teammate.   Davies, who nearly died in a car crash last year, told The Associated Press on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010, that Jacques Faty, his teammate at French club Sochaux, asked him to switch places and tell police he was driving because Faty thought his license was still suspended from a previous speeding infraction.
