Pennant pleads guilty to drink-driving

IN COURT: Pennant (right)

AT THE Trafford Magistrates’ Court, a Premier League footballer has pleaded guilty on two charges of drink-driving and driving whilst disqualified.

Stoke City midfielder Jermaine Pennant collided with a car in Greater Manchester on April 29 and was charged with drink-driving, driving whilst disqualified and for having no insurance.

In 2005, Pennant was jailed for three months after pleading guilty to drink-driving while having no insurance.

However, he only served 31 days in prison and was forced to play football with an electronic tag attached to his ankle for his former club Birmingham City.

The 29-year-old will learn whether his sentence will be custodial or financial later today (May 15).
