England Disgrace

"Chelsea and England footballer Danny Drinkwater has been charged with drink-driving after a car crash. The midfielder was arrested after a Range Rover crashed in Mere, Cheshire, in the early hours of Monday. Two women and a man were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Cheshire Police said Mr. Drinkwater, 29, of Nether Alderley in Cheshire, was released on unconditional bail to appear at Stockport Magistrates' Court on 13 May. Police were called to reports of a one-vehicle crash on Ashley Road in Mere at 00:30 BST and arrested the footballer." - BBC News, Tuesday, 9 April 2019
"
Danny Drinkwater has been banned from driving after ploughing his Range Rover through a wall while twice the legal drink-drive limit. Stockport Magistrates' Court heard he caused 50,000 of damage to the car. Drinkwater admitted drink-driving and was banned for 20 months. The court heard he suffered a graze to his forehead when his car went through a wall in Ashley Road near to Tatton Park country house. Prosecutor Subi Chowdhury said Drinkwater himself called emergency services after the crash at about 00:30 BST and admitted drinking alcohol to police officers. He gave a reading at Middlewich Police station of 87 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, with the legal limit being 35 microgrammes. Robin Sellars, defending, said Drinkwater was "fully compliant" with police and said he had been to a private function, with a friend expected to drive him home. However, his friend was unable to do so and Drinkwater decided to drive himself to his home in Nether Alderley, Cheshire. Mr Sellars added: "He only had himself to blame. He understands he's done wrong. He instructs me he will be employing a driver." Mr Sellars said Drinkwater had no previous convictions and asked for him to be punished with a fine rather than community service. But District Judge Mark Hadfield rejected this and sentenced him to a 12-month community order with 70 hours' community service. The former Manchester United trainee was also ordered to pay 85 prosecution costs and an 85 victim surcharge. Mr Hadfield said: "You knew when you got behind the wheel of that vehicle you should not have been driving." - BBC News, Monday, 13 May 2019
