Former Premier League footballer Marlon King has been jailed for 18 months for dangerous driving after a crash which left a motorist with a broken arm.

The former Middlesbrough striker had pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving at Nottingham Crown Court in March.

Sentencing King at the same court today, Recorder Paul Mann QC said: “I do not regard your case as merely impulsive or silly behaviour.

“It was aggressive. It was arrogant.”

The court heard King had been eating an ice cream at the wheel when he caused a three-car pile up on the A46 in Nottinghamshire last April.

The judge also handed King a three-year driving ban.
