Judge sentences former Liverpool striker, Dean Saunders to jail for refusing breath test

Ex-Liverpool striker, Dean Saunders has been jailed for 10 weeks for refusing to provide a roadside breath test.  

The 55-year old BT Sport pundit was stopped by police on suspicion of drink-driving in Boughton and Saunders, who was capped by Wales 75 times, was slurring and had to prop himself up against his Audi A8 car when he was asked to get out of the vehicle, Chester Magistrates’ Court heard.  

Jailing Saunders, District Judge Nicholas Sanders called him “arrogant”. Outside court, Conor Johnstone, defending Saunders, said his client would be appealing against the sentence as he believed it was excessive.  

A bail application is expected to be made to a judge at Chester Crown Court later on Wednesday so Saunders does not have to spend time in custody before any future appeal hearings, Mr Johnstone added. The former Derby County and Aston Villa striker, of The Paddocks, Whitegate, Cheshire, told the court he had been at Chester Races and had drunk two pints.
