Birmingham striker Marlon King arrested following serious 3-car Porsche crash


27 April 2013



3 January 2013


Birmingham City striker Marlon King, 33, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving yesterday - his 33rd birthday - after a Porsche, a Volkswagen Polo and a Vauxhall Astra were involved in a crash at 2:50pm.


The driver of the Polo, 35, was air-lifted to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre with serious injuries, while others suffered minor injures.


Nottinghamshire police said King was questioned on suspicion of dangerous driving after a three-car crash in Winthorpe on Friday.  The former Middlesbrough, Coventry and Watford striker was later released on police bail.


King was jailed for 18 months in October 2009 after groping a woman in a nightclub and breaking her nose when she spurned his 'disgusting' advances.


Last month, he was ruled out for the season after being forced to undergo knee surgery.


King’s arrest follows a string of appalling high profile cases involving professional footballers and serious driving misdemeanours.


Sadly, whilst sports personalities can afford high performance cars, the fact is that the majority do not have the necessary training or experience to drive them.


Each time they take to the road, they put both their own careers and lives - and those of the public - at risk.  Which is precisely why The Supercar Academy is here to assist…
