Professor Green Given Ban After Drink-Driving

Rapper Professor Green has been banned from driving for a year after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

The 30 year old drove his Mercedes after being robbed of his £40,000 Rolex watch on the doorstep of his southeast London home.

Bromley Magistrates' Court heard that he got into his car because his feared his wife, Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, who had screamed and fled, was being chased by the attacker.

The singer, whose real name is Stephen Manderson, was arrested on November 3 and was found to have driven with 52 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35.

The I Need You Tonight star confirmed his name, his age and address and pleaded guilty to the charge.

He was fined £525 and ordered to pay costs.

He said he would take a drink-driver rehabilitation course so that his 12-month disqualification might be cut to nine months. His licence was also endorsed for the offence.

The rapper was arrested after police attended reports that a man had been robbed in Tyrwhitt Road, Lewisham, at around 2.40am.

When officers arrived, they discovered that a Mercedes had crashed into a van.
