Aaron Wan-Bissaka Pleads Guilty to Driving his Lamborghini while Disqualified
Manchester United footballer, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified without a license and without insurance and a license.
The 23-year-old Aaron wan-Bissaka stood in the dock at Manchester Magistrates’ Court and only spoke when confirming his name and address and entered his guilty pleas during the brief hearing.
Wan-Bissaka’s earlier conviction for speeding, leading to his ban and disqualification, is subject to a further hearing where the conviction may be set aside.
He was stopped while behind the wheel of his £160,000 Lamborghini Urus on 23 rd June this year where roadside police checks revealed he was already banned from driving.
Sentencing for the latest offenses will depend on the outcome of the speeding hearing, the court heard, and a further hearing was adjourned until 16 th September in Manchester when both cases may be transferred to Skipton Magistrates’ Court.
A further hearing on the speeding matter will be held at Skipton magistrates court on October 1. The right-back was given unconditional bail until later in the month.
Carl Gaffney, prosecuting, said that at just before 11pm on 23 rd June a police patrol was on duty on Kingsway, Stockport, and stopped Wan-Bissaka behind the wheel of his Lamborghini.
He said, “when Mr. Wan-Bissaka, when spoken to he, was cooperative at the roadside. Asked if he had insurance he answered, “as far as I am aware” and he held the full UK driving license”.
“The officer carries out roadside checks and it becomes self-evident that Mr. Wan-Bissaka had been disqualified from driving on 18 th June 2021, at West Yorkshire magistrates court to 17 th December”.
Throughout he was cooperative and cordial. He’s a man of no previous convictions whatsoever”.
Outside court Shaun Draycott, defending, said Wan-Bissaka had been in Spain at the time of 18 June and was therefore absent when he was disqualified.
