Former Premier League star banned from driving after being caught at wheel with phone

FORMER Premier League and BBC star Jermaine Jenas has been banned from driving for six months after being caught using his phone at the wheel.

The former Spurs, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest footballer, 39, was stopped by cops after they suspected he was using his mobile in his Range Rover.

In October last year, he was stopped in Marsh Lane, Stanmore, North London.

Just after 3pm in the afternoon officers saw the former England ace just over five miles from his home, as he was alleged to be using his phone behind the wheel.

He was also caught speeding on the M25 on March 4 earlier this year, going 65mph in a 50mph. 

Earlier this month Jenas admitted both offences at Willesden Magistrates’ Court.

He has now been slapped with six penalty points, and is banned from driving for six months.

He was also fined £660 for using his phone – and was fined a further £1,410, another three penalty points and ordered to pay £231 in others costs for speeding.

PC Neil Cornelius told the court: “I noticed that the driver of this vehicle was using a handheld mobile device whilst driving. The device was being held in both their hands.”

Jenas, played more than 150 games for Tottenham, and was named PFA Young Player of the Year in 2002-2003.

He retired in 2016 and has since gone on to be a successful pundit on Match of The Day, and currently co-hosts The One Show on BBC.

Back in 2013 Jenas, who was playing for QPR at the time, was fined for failing to provide information to police when he was caught speeding.

In 2011 he was photographed after he crashed his £200k Bentley into the back of a van.

He was also given three points for speeding in 2003 whilst he was playing for Newcastle United.
