Winning captain Lloris pleads guilty in drink drive charge

Winning captain Lloris pleads guilty in drink drive charge

Police pulled over the Tottenham and France goalkeeper, 31, in his 2018-plate Porsche Panamera when he was found travelling 15mph in a 30mph zone in Marylebone.

The court heard police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' Porsche driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone.

The court heard that Lloris veered his auto "towards parked vehicles" before correcting himself and went through a red light.

Inside, the details of the case were heard, where it was reported that Lloris had "vomited" and "had to be helped from his car" after being stopped by police.

He was given a fine of £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months.

A team spokesman said before the sentencing that Tottenham were treating the entire matter "extremely seriously".

The legal driving limit in England in a breathalyser test is 35 microgrammes.

"He had booked a taxi but unfortunately the taxi cancelled at the last minute", Sonn said.

Storm response in Puerto Rico 'incredibly successful,' Trump says
Puerto Rico's governor last month raised the USA territory's official death toll from hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975. Trump has declared states of emergency for all three states. "Tremendous amount of water".


The attorney also said, "On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet. But, as Mr Lloris pointed out to me, it is when you're drunk you're likely to make mistakes - that was to drive home".

"Forty days later, he was arrested in central London", said the lawer.

Lloris was spectacular during the World Cup and gave up no goals in either France's tough quarter-final match-up against Uruguay or their semi-final against a risky Belgium side.

David Sonn, defending, said Lloris' "spectacular fall from grace was not lost" on the goalkeeper.

The footballer was flanked by two members of his entourage as he made his way from his vehicle into court.

Lloris, of East Finchley, north London, signed for Spurs from Lyon in 2012, making 209 appearances in the Premier League and keeping 75 clean sheets.

"This kind of risky behaviour is selfish, illegal and puts lives at risk".
