Dane striker Bendtner fined $146,000 for drink driving

  • Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner was fined $146,000 and had his driving licence suspended for three years after admitting to drink driving, a Copenhagen court heard on Tuesday.

    Police stopped Bendtner, currently on a season-long loan to Juventus from Arsenal, after driving against the traffic in the Danish capital late on Saturday.

    The 25-year-old admitted to being three times over the legal alcohol limit in Denmark.

    On Monday, he was asked by the Danish FA to take six months off from the national team to reflect on his actions.
