Premiership footballer Jermaine Pennant is just the latest in a string of star names to be dealt with by a judge, following a driving-related conviction.
Only last August, Smethwick-born West Bromwich Albion striker Lee Hughes (pictured) was jailed for six years for causing death by dangerous driving.
Earlier in the year, former Aston Villa and England star Gary Charles was sentenced to five months for breaking a curfew order to fly off on holiday to Spain.
He had breached a community rehabilitation order imposed for a drunken attack on a woman.
He had previously admitted dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen and failing to stop and was jailed for four months by Derby magistrates.
In 1991, former Tottenham and England full-back Terry Fenwick received two months for drink-driving.
A year earlier, Arsenal captain and former England captain Tony Adams served two months at Chelmsford Open Prison for drink-driving offences.
Former Manchester United star George Best was jailed for 54 days for drink-driving, assaulting a policeman and jumping bail in 1984.
