Liverpool's Mohamed Salah faces no action from police for alleged phone incident
Mohamed Salah will face no criminal action after he was allegedly seen using his mobile phone while behind the wheel of a car.
In August, a video circulated on social media appearing to show the Liverpool forward on his phone when stationary in his car and surrounded by a number of people following Liverpool's 4-0 win over West Ham United.
Liverpool referred the incident to Merseyside Police, who said on Thursday no further action would be taken.
"We can confirm a 26 year-old man was spoken to following an incident on Arkles Lane in Liverpool on Sunday Aug. 12, 2018," a Merseyside Police statement, obtained by ESPN FC, read.
"Enquiries have taken place and there is insufficient evidence to support a prosecution and as such no further action will be taken.
"The man has been spoken to by officers and given advice and guidance around mobile phone use in a vehicle."
In the U.K. it is illegal to hold a phone while driving, with the law applying if a driver has stopped at traffic lights or is queuing in traffic.
