Stoke forward Saido Berahino has been found guilty of drink-driving at
Highbury Magistrates’ Court.
Chair of the bench Mark Oxenham said the prosecution had not proved their case beyond reasonable doubt “that the defendant was not in fear of death or fear of serious injury to himself or his companions”.
But he added that Berahino’s girlfriend had driven the car immediately beforehand and “could have continued the journey away from the scene”.
The court heard Berahino, 25, had previous convictions for drink-driving in 2015 and being drunk in charge of a vehicle in 2012.
Magistrates have adjourned sentencing for probation reports to be prepared.
