Jack Grealish Slapped With Nine Month Driving Ban And £82k Fine

Posted by

Aston Villa and England star Jack Grealish has been hit with a nine-month driving ban and a fine of £82,499 after pleading guilty to two charges of careless driving.

The England international appeared before the Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday for sentencing after pleading guilty to two charges of careless driving on November 24th.

The first incident happened during the first UK lockdown back in March when Grealish’s white Range Rover hit two parked cars.

The 25-year-old was spotted at the scene wearing two different pairs of shoes, while his car was left parked on double yellow lines.

A witness at the scene said Grealish smelled of “intoxicating liquor” and was slurring his words, immediately after the crash.

Grealish apologised only hours after the incident, saying he was “deeply embarrassed” and had “stupidly agreed” to go to a friend’s house.

The Aston Villa captain also pleaded guilty to a separate offence of careless driving after prosecutors said he was spotted by an unmarked police car on October 18th driving more than 90mph along the M42.

Prosecutors said his driving was “close to an intimidating distance”.

Grealish has been handed a nine month driving ban as well as a hefty £82,499 fine.
