Former Sunderland footballer Darron Gibson spared jail over drink-drive crash 


Ex-Sunderland footballer Darron Gibson attends court for a previous hearing. NEWS REPORTER Email Published: 10:07 Monday 21 May 2018 


Ex-Sunderland footballer Darron Gibson was today spared jail after he admitted a second drink-drive charge in less than three years. The 30-year-old was three times over the limit when he smashed his Mercedes 4x4 into parked cars on St Patrick's Day, South Tyneside Magistrates' Court was told. The aftermath of Darron Gibson's crash. The incident in Sunderland followed a serious collision in 2015 when his car hit three cyclists who were fixing a wheel on the pavement. Gibson, who has played for Manchester United, Everton and Sunderland, knocked a taxi's wing mirror off in West Boldon in the latest incident. But he carried on and smashed into parked cars in Dovedale Road, Fulwell, Sunderland, as he drove to the club's training ground. His grey 4x4 ended up on the pavement, and the road was strewn with debris. Sunderland terminated his contract after he was charged following the March 17 crash. Gibson, from Hale, Cheshire, was handed an interim disqualification and granted unconditional bail ahead of sentence. When he reappeared at court for sentence today, Gibson was banned from driving for 40 months, and given a two-year community sentence with 250 hours of unpaid work. He was also ordered to do 30 days of rehabilitation activity. The Republic of Ireland international was also ordered to pay £800 compensation to the taxi driver whose car he hit, £85 court costs and an £85 victim surcharge.

It’s nice when you are a so called celebrity
There are treated differently
Anyone else would have been given a six month jail sentence
