image for Man City Fan Fined Over Offensive Car Sticker

Manchester City supporter Darren Braithwaite has been fined £500 and jailed for 7 days after being found guilty of displaying a car sticker that was "grossly offensive and detrimental to public safety.".

The City fan put the sticker - a 2 feet by 2 feet close up of the club's top scorer Carlos Tevez - on the inside of the front windscreen of his Renault Megane last month.

Since then, Braithwaite has been interviewed on no less than 5 separate occasions after cars in the immediate vicinity of his vehicle had been involved in accidents.

The presiding judge, in sentencing Braithwaite, commented :

"The police presented compelling evidence that, apart from substantially reducing the driver's vision, the offending sticker seriously compromised road safety. The sight of a life size Carlos Tevez mask bearing down on car drivers directly contributed to 5 head on collisions. It was pure luck that nobody was seriously hurt.

A similarly sized photo of Roberto Mancini would not, however, pose any such safety concerns".

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
