Winning captain Lloris pleads guilty in drink drive charge

Winning captain Lloris pleads guilty in drink drive charge

Hugo Lloris (age 31) has been sentenced to 50,000 pounds (63 350 francs) fine and a 20-month suspension of the driving licence by the court of london, the Westminster, on Wednesday.

Police said Lloris almost hit parked cars and went through a red light.

The maximum punishment for drink-driving in Britain is a six-month jail term, although fines and temporary driving bans are more common. The legal limit in England and Wales is 35 micrograms.

His £115,000 Porsche was seen veering across the road, nearly hitting parked cars, and running a red light when it was stopped by police.

Communities could lose electricity for weeks, Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said. Winds along the Carolina coast will reach tropical storm-force (39 miles per hour) early Thursday morning.


His lawyer said Lloris knew he should not have been driving and had called a cab after a night out.

According to reports Lloris had dined at the Bagatelle, a Franco-Mediterranean restaurant in the Mayfair district, along with two other players who play in London: another world champion, Olivier Giroud (Chelsea) and defender Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal).

France's goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, holding the trophy during a ceremony to celebrate the 2018 World Cup victory, is now facing a drink-driving charge in London.

"I've spoken with him, he realises his mistake and he's sorry for it", said Deschamps.

However, he has received hundreds of supportive messages from his family, colleagues and players, both active and retired. The Daily Mail says Ramos would have earned less than $500 for the match despite having nearly 30 years of experience.


It was reported at the time that Lloris had failed a roadside breathalyser test after a routine stop at around 2am, just three days before Spurs were due to face Manchester United at Old Trafford. "The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris". He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.

The magistrate said the punishment acknowledged the seriousness of the offence and the aggravating circumstances of having a passenger in the vehicle, but also his admission at the earliest stage, including his statement released to the press shortly after his arrest.

Lloris was seen exiting the court in a dark suit surrounded by a crowd of journalists.

Lloris has been with Tottenham since joining from Lyon in 2012, making 256 appearances for the north London club.
