FOOTBALL: Marlon King sentenced to 18 months in prison for dangerous driving

Jamaica international footballer Marlon King was sentenced today to 18 months in prison and banned from driving for three years after admitting to dangerous driving in an incident last year.



The incident left a motorist with a broken arm.



The former Watford, Wigan and Sheffield United striker pleaded guilty at Nottingham crown court to the charge.



King committed the offence on his 33rd birthday while driving a Porsche Panamera on the A46 in Nottinghamshire on April 26 last year.



King was due to go on trial after pleading not guilty to the charge of dangerous driving at an earlier hearing.



However, he changed his plea to guilty on March 18.



The Reggae Boy is currently without a club after he was released by the League One side Sheffield United in December.



King served an 18 months sentence in October 2009 for groping a young woman and then breaking her nose after she spurned his advances.
