Drunk Nigerian Footballer Banned After Crashing £60,000 Range Rover by CollinsWeGlobe(m): 10:59am On Jan 03, 2018
Arsenal starlet Chuba Akpom has been banned from driving after crashing his £60,000 Range Rover around 4.50am on the morning of December 17, while drunk on a concoction of ‘vodka and cranberry juice’, Daily Mail reports. .
.
The 22-year-old smashed a fence and furniture after losing control of his car and mounting a grass verge near his home in Barnet, North London. Police followed the trail of destruction and gave Akpom a breath test. .
After it showed he was above the legal limit, the British-born Nigerian was taken to police station and later charged with drink driving. But no one told the player’s father –who, after discovering the wreckage the following morning, feared his son had been kidnapped, the Sun claim. .

At Willesden Magistrates Court on Monday he was fined £9,350, with £85 costs and disqualified from driving for 17 months after admitting driving the Range Rover with more than double the legal limit of alcohol in his system. .

“His father woke up later and found the crashed car outside the gate with no driver and for a moment he was seriously concerned about what had happened to his son,” Akpom’s lawyer Aki Achillea told the court. .

“He was about to ring hospitals and the police, fearing his son, being a high-profile footballer, had been abducted so this has affected the family as well. He has let himself down and made a dreadful mistake for a boy that has always been so disciplined.”
