Hornets’ striker Troy Deeney has been fined for driving with dangerously tinted windows.
The Watford captain was pulled over in his Mercedes Benz by police on London’s A406 North Circular Road on May 9 this year.
The car’s windows were found to be below the legal limit for light penetration after testing with specialist equipment.
Deeney pleaded guilty to driving a car in a dangerous condition at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on today (Monday, October 14).
He was fined £650, ordered to pay £150 in costs and was given a £65 surcharge.
According to the BBC, the arresting officer classed the windows as “dangerous for pedestrians” and ordered Deeney not to drive at night, the court heard.
The footballer made the “necessary changes within a short period of time” and the car, which had been bought with the windows already tinted, is now legally compliant.
