The state prosecutors’ office has dropped legal proceedings against Czech footballer David Limberský, charged in a drinking and driving incident in Prague last September. After consuming alcohol, the player crashed his luxury Bentley in front of a police squad car and attempted to flee the scene. No one was hurt in the incident. The case against him was suspended after Mr Limberský paid all damages and agreed to a one-year ban on driving. His lawyer said important factors in the decision were that he no previous criminal record, nor had any points deducted in the points system which is part of the Czech driver’s licence.
