A former Surrey Police officer is due to appear in court accused of selling details of cases involving John Terry's mother and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood to a national newspaper.
Ex-Pc Alan Tierney was allegedly paid £1,750 for passing information relating to the two cases to The Sun.
It is understood that one relates to the arrest of former England defender Terry's mother Sue Terry and mother-in-law Sue Poole on suspicion of shoplifting in March 2009.
Sources said the second case concerned the arrest of Wood, who was questioned in December 2009 over allegations that he assaulted his young Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova.
Wood, Sue Terry and Poole all accepted police cautions.
Tierney will appear at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court facing two charges of misconduct – the first between March 26 and April 3, 2009, and the second between December 2 and 7, 2009.
A prison officer at a high security jail will appear at the same court separately accused of selling information relating to a high-profile inmate to the tabloid.
Richard Trunkfield, an operational support officer at HMP Woodhill near Milton Keynes, allegedly received £3,350 in return for information provided in 2010.
He faces a charge of committing misconduct in public office.
