Jordon Ibe faces court case over Bentley accident

Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe is undergoing a court case for allegedly driving away after crashing his Bentley into a coffee shop this summer.

Ibe is accused of driving off after ploughing into The Pantry on Plaistow Lane in Bromley, south London, in the early hours of 30 July.

Reports say the shop was badly damaged, while a Mercedes parked in front of the shop also suffered minor damage.

The 23-year-old appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court and denied failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Ibe claimed that at the scene of the incident which happened around 4.50 am, he stopped, stepped out and waited for some time but no one showed up to exchange contact before he finally drove off.

"The defendant has been involved in a collision - his vehicle has left the road, collided with a parked car and crashed into a shop front." Prosecutor George Crivelli said.

"The vehicle remained for a short period before driving off."

Ibe's car also suffered significant damage, with part of it left in the rubble of the shop front, the court heard.

The case has been listed for trial on 10 February at Bexley Magistrates' Court.

Magistrate Philip Widdowson said: "If you fail to attend, you could be committing an offence for which you could be arrested, fined or sent to prison.

"If you commit an offence while on bail your sentence will be greater."
