World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris has admitted being more than twice the drink-drive limit when he was stopped by police in central London.
The World Cup victor, wearing a dark suit and no tie, faced a scrum of photographers as he arrived at court, flanked by security guards.
If he pleads guilty, he faces a driving ban and a hefty fine based on his earnings.
Fitch also told the court that police saw Lloris driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone, and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself.
A team spokesman said before the sentencing that Tottenham were treating the entire matter "extremely seriously".
The auto veered "towards parked vehicles" and then went through a red light, prosecutor Henry Fitch said.
The legal driving limit in England in a breathalyser test is 35 microgrammes.
The court heard the goalkeeper had been dining in a restaurant and was showered with drinks from fellow diners.

The attorney also said, "On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet".
He said a taxi which had booked cancelled so Lloris made "the first of a number of unwise decisions" and chose to drive home.
For the defence, David Sonn said Lloris' "spectacular fall from grace was not lost" on the goalkeeper.
"Just 40 days later, he was arrested".
Lloris, who made his way into the court building flanked by two members of his entourage, left the building without comment.
Lloris, who lives in East Finchley, signed for Spurs in 2012 and has made 209 appearances.
