Chimbonda banned for six months

by  | 

Blackburn Rovers full-back Pascal Chimbonda might not even notice the extra car insurance he will have to pay after being banned for six months.

Or even the £2,185 in fines and costs, the result of two speeding offences that pushed him over the 12-point limit under the totting up procedure.

Northallerton Magistrates' Court heard how he was clocked doing 82mph in black Cadillac on the A1 in Nottinghamshire and 91mph in a Porsche Cayenne on the A19 in North Yorkshire.

Chimbonda, 30, of Loughton, Essex, did not appear in court and was not legally represented.

The French international had earlier denied the offences at Grantham Magistrates' Court, and the case was switched to Northallerton for sentencing.
