Former champion footballer and TV larrikin Sam Newman is negotiating with police to have a speeding charge against him resolved.
Newman was not legally represented at Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday morning to answer a charge of exceeding 100 km/h.
He first reported to a mention counter, then met briefly with prosecutor Sergeant Rick Ellin before the case was adjourned without him appearing before a magistrate.
It is alleged he exceeded a 100 km/h speed limit by 5 km/h on the Peninsula Link freeway in January this year.
Before leaving court, Newman told Fairfax Media he had written to police after January but had not received a response.
He said he had not received a speeding ticket in 18 years and hoped that once police responded to his correspondence the charge would resolve.
His case was adjourned for two weeks.
