Chelsea's Mikel banned for drink driving
Friday 24 April 2009
Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel was banned from driving for 15 months today after he admitted drink-driving.
The 22-year-old was found to be at almost twice the limit when he was stopped by police in his Range Rover in west London in January, the Press Association reported.
The Nigerian international, who signed for Chelsea for £16m in 2006 from Lyn Oslo, was also ordered to pay £1,580 at West London Magistrates' Court.
