Nicklas Bendtner Begins 50 Day Prison Sentence By Posting Picture Of His Electronic Ankle Tag
Nicklas Bendtner has posted a picture of his electronic ankle tag after he was sentenced to 50 days in prison for assaulting a taxi driver.
The former Arsenal, who found himself in a fight with a driver from Dantaxi in Copenhagen back in September, reportedly broke a man's jaw in the scuffle after kicking and punching him.
He also refused to pay the £4.80 fare while out with his girlfriend, Philine Roepstorff.
Bendtner posted the following picture on social media: "Swipe to the left."
According to the Danish newspaper BT, the incident was first brought to Copenhagen Police's attention on Sunday night.
"I can confirm that there has been a serious assault on one of our drivers tonight," Dantaxi's Rasmus Krochin told BT (via a rough translation).

"The driver is currently on the operating table with a broken jaw. Our director was informed about [it] this morning."
Copenhagen Police security chief Carsten Reenberg added: "We have had a report about violence against a rental car. I can not tell you any more."
One Reddit user wrote: "Can't really support a guy like that even if he was on my team. Should be put in jail, TBH. If he gets off just because he is rich, it's a big f**king slap to all the taxi drivers of that company."
Another user said: "Danish football in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this past week.
He's survived a near-death crash, had a baby with a former Baroness, fought with teammates, fallen out of nightclubs and done some pretty bizarre things. Now he's facing jail for assaulting a taxi driver. It's 'Lord Bendtner...' https://t.co/eJqFh6s7Ce- Jon Livesey (@JonLiveseyDM) November 9, 2018
