Bournemouth star Jordan Ibe pleads not guilty over coffee shop car crash

Bournemouth midfielder Jordan Ibe has pleaded not guilty after allegedly driving his Bentley away from a coffee shop car crash.

The AFC Bournemouth midfielder, 23, is accused of driving off after allegedly ploughing into The Pantry on Plaistow Lane in Bromley, south London in the early hours of July 30.

It was so badly damaged the entire shop front had to be removed, a court heard.

A Mercedes parked in front of the shop also suffered minor damage, the Bournemouth Echo reports.

Ibe appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court today, where he denied failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

He did not enter his plea to a second charge of driving without due care and attention.

Ibe, who signed for Bournemouth from Liverpool in 2016 for a reported £15 million fee, was charged by postal requisition on October 29.

His white Bentley Bentayga 4×4 remained at the scene for just a few minutes before reversing and driving off, prosecutor George Crivelli claims.

The trial will take place on February 10 at Bexley Magistrates’ Court.
