Barcelona star didn’t have valid car licence

BARCELONA centre-back Gerard Pique, once with Manchester United, could face up to six months in jail after being caught driving without a valid licence.

According to reports from radio station Cadena Ser he was pulled over last Friday) by the police for a routine check and asked to show his documents. Officers saw that he had zero points left on his licence, which meant he should not have been driving.

In Spain, drivers start with 12 points and can then lose them for various offences. Once they have lost all their points, they can’t drive until points are reinstated, normally after a ban and a written test, following a road-safety training session.

Taking to the roads before having points reinstated is punishable by up to six months in prison or a 6,000-euro fine.

This is not the first time he has been in trouble with the police. Last year, Pique was fined for speeding, and in 2014 he had to cough up 10,500 euros after arguing with a traffic officer. His brother was fined for a road infringement in the same incident.
