CCTV Footage Of Jack Grealish Crashing Into Two Parked Cars Emerges Online After Nine Month Driving Ban
West Midlands Police have shared damning CCTV footage of Jack Grealish hitting TWO parked cars which resulted in his nine-month driving ban.
The Aston Villa star has also been hit with a £82,499 fine - the 'largest-ever' driving fine handed to a footballer.
After pleading guilty to two offences at Birmingham Magistrates' Court today, a video of the incident from March emerged online.
Grealish is seen jogging to his Range Rover, wearing non-matching footwear after leaving a lockdown party.
Once getting behind the wheel, he reverses it into a van before driving away. He returns to the scene, backing into another car.
The England international tries to drive away again but swerves right and mounts the kerb before slamming into a wall.
A security guard then approaches him and said he was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol after the crash.

Grealish exchanged details with the respective owners of the vehicles though had left by the time officers arrived, meaning he was not breathalysed.
He breached coronavirus guidelines less than 24 hours after urging people to stay home to protest the NHS.
The 25-year-old was sentenced by District Judge John Bristow who said: "The offence on March 29 was committed six days after the national coronavirus lockdown was announced.
"You should have been at home, you do not assert you had any proper reason not to be.
"You should not have been driving on March 29 - this is a further aggravating feature.
"The two offences were committed within seven months of each other, you have caused damage by your driving and you have driven in an intimidating way at excessive speeds on a motorway."
Grealish, who has scored five league goals and recorded five assists in the Premier League this season, is set to return to action on Thursday when his side host Burnley.
