1 Min Read

Chuba Akpom, who plays for Brighton and Hove on loan from Arsenal, has been banned from driving after he crashed his £60,000 (app. N29 million) Range Rover while driving under the influence of alcohol.

In the incident which occurred around 4.50am on December 17 near his home in Barnet, North, Akpom reportedly smashed a fence and furniture after losing control of his car and mounting a grass verge.

The 22-year-old was said to have consumed a concoction of ‘vodka and cranberry juice’.

Police reportedly followed the vehicle and charged Akpom for drink driving after a breath test showed that he was above the legal limit.

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