Trouble seems to find the former UFC fighter, as he previously had to register his presence in a court in Sweden over drunk driving in 2022. As reported by the Swedish news outlet Expressen, authorities had arrested him on DUI charges. Likewise, in 2019, he got slapped with a fine of £10,000 after joyriding a taxi cab in Tenerife along with four other individuals. It appears the 30-year-old is again in trouble. But this time with an ally Andrew Tate by his side.

Till was charged with driving while disqualified on Ternhall Road, Fazakerley, on May 21, 2023. The other charges included driving without insurance and then preventing a constable in the execution of his duty. There were already charges against him for driving-related offenses and hence stands ‘disqualified’ by the authorities.

Till only recorded his name, age, and address during the hearing. Further, the court granted him unconditional bail and asked him to appear on August 30th for the trial.
