Stoke footballer Jermaine Pennant, who received a suspended sentence and a three year driving ban today, has been in trouble like this before.
He was jailed for three months after he was caught drink driving while he was already banned in 2005.
The Nottingham born player crashed his Mercedes into a lamp post in Buckinghamshire while he was already banned from the road.
Pennant pleaded guilty and was today given a three month prison sentence and banned from driving for three years.
Pennant started his career at Notts County and in 1999, at the age of fifteen, became the youngest player to be transferred with Arsenal buying him for two million pounds.
