Ashley Cole gets ban
Cheryl Cole's soccer star husband Ashley has been banned from driving for four months for doing more than twice the speed limit in his sports car
Cheryl Cole's husband Ashley has been given a driving ban for speeding in his sports car.
The soccer player - who was travelling at more than twice the speed limit in his Lamborghini Gallardo when he was caught racing along the A3 in South West London on November 17 2008 - was today (29.01.10) fined £1,000 and banned from driving for four months.
The Chelsea defender - who claimed he was being chased by paparazzi - was caught doing 104mph in a 50mph zone.
Ashley did not appear in court but was told by Kingston magistrates he could face prison if he drives while disqualified.
The 29-year-old sportsman's legal team immediately launched a bid against the ban which will be considered later.
His lawyer Katherine Hodson revealed Ashley was "regrettably" unable to attend the hearing because he was playing a soccer match tomorrow night (30.01.10).
