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.
