Stoke City star Peter Crouch handed driving ban
STOKE City striker Peter Crouch was yesterday disqualified from driving for six months just weeks after appearing in court on other motoring offences.
Because he already had nine points on his licence, he was automatically banned under totting-up procedures.
Magistrates at Nuneaton fined him a total of £1,300 for two offences of failing to give police information relating to who was driving a Range Rover which was alleged to have exceeded the speed limit on the M42/M6 Toll Road at Curdworth in Warwickshire on March 6 and April 25.
On the first occasion the vehicle was recorded on camera travelling at 69mph in a 40mph zone and on the second occasion 70mph in a 40mph zone.

Crouch, aged 31, of Mottram, Cheshire, did not turn up for the hearing.
In addition to the fines, he was ordered to pay £170 costs, with £15 victim surcharge, and his licence endorsed with a further 12 penalty points, making 21 in total.
The Sentinel reported in August how the star was hit with five penalty points after being caught speeding after a match in Macclesfield.
