Footballer Robinson banned from driving
The captain of Premier Division champions PHC Zebras was today fined and banned from the roads for driving while disqualified.
Cecoy Robinson, who has played for Bermuda as a midfielder, admitted the offence when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court this morning.
Prosecutor Karen King told the court that the 30-year-old was arrested for a traffic matter around 4.45am in Pembroke on June 29.
A police check revealed that he had been banned from driving until October 15.
In court today, Robinson said: “I was in a bad spot. I didn’t have a choice. But it’s my fault. It isn’t anyone else’s fault.”
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined him $1,000 and disqualified him from driving for 18 months.
