EPL: Chelsea star banned for 20 months

A Stockport Magistrates’ Court in England, on Monday, banned Chelsea star, Danny Drinkwater, from driving for 20 months, Mirror UK reports.

The Judge, Mark Hadfield also ordered that Drinkwater should be given 70 hours community service after the midfielder pleaded guilty to drink driving.

DAILY POST recalls that the 29-year-old was arrested by 12.30am on April 8 after the Range Rover vehicle he was driving hit a Skoda

Confirming the incident to reporters, Cheshire Police said: “A 29-year-old man from Nether Alderley was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. He is currently in custody assisting officers with their inquiries.”

Drinkwater crashed his Range Rover into a Skoda car at approximately 12.30am, hours before Chelsea’s Premier League 2-0 victory over West Ham United at Stamford Bridge.

The player and solicitor, Beth Mantel had attended a charity event in an upmarket bar called Victors in Hale, Greater Manchester, approximately six miles away from his house.

The crash left debris scattered across the country road while a fence was also flattened.

Drinkwater joined Chelsea in a ÂŁ35million deal last summer from Leicester City.

The England star has fallen out of favour at Chelsea since manager, Maurizio Sarri, took over from fellow Italian, Antonio Conte.
