In addition to an £ 82,000 fine for crashing his Range Rover during the lockdown in March, Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish was given a nine-month driving ban.

In addition to a fine of £ 82,000 for crashing his Range Rover during the first lockdown in March, Aston Villa talisman Jack Grealish was given a nine-month driving ban. On Tuesday, after previously pleading guilty to two counts of reckless driving this year the English midfielder was sentenced to Birmingham Magistrates’ Court. Grealish has already had six points on his license for a speeding offense in 2018 before the convictions.

Jack Grealish was convicted at the Magistrates’ Court of Birmingham on Tuesday after having previously confessed to two counts of dangerous driving this year. The first one was linked to an incident when his £ 80,000 Range Rover bumped into two parked vehicles in the civil parish of Dickens Heath in Solihull, West Midlands, during the first coronavirus lockdown in March. The incident occurred on March 29, less than 24 hours after he shared a Twitter video asking fans to follow the rules of the lockdown and remain at home.

A witness reported that Grealish smelled “intoxicating liquor” and slurred his words while present at the scene immediately after the accident. He later apologized for having “stupidly agreeing” to go to the house of a neighbor.

Grealish also pleaded guilty to a separate crime of reckless driving after prosecutors said an unmarked police car found him driving on 18 October at more than 90 mph along the M42, near the training ground of Villa, at “close to an intimidating distance.”

The 25-year-old confessed to being “deeply ashamed” of his behavior. Nevertheless, Judge John Bristow issued Grealish a nine-month driving ban.
