Kelly Brook’s boyfriend fined over badger van smash

Kelly Brook’s on/off boyfriend has been fined following a bizarre court case involving a crashed van full of dead badgers. David McIntosh, a former star of British TV show Gladiators, was accused of losing control of a vehicle transporting the culled creatures to a furnace in Gloucestershire, England last September (13).
The 28 year old claimed he was distracted when a radio fell under his brake pedal, but a passenger claimed he had fallen asleep.
McIntosh pleaded guilty via letter to driving without due care and attention and driving other than in accordance with a licence in Stroud Magistrates Court in Gloucestershire, England on Wednesday (12Mar14). His licence for driving large vehicles was suspended in 2005.
McIntosh was fined $225 (£141) and six penalty points were added to his licence.
The U.K. government ordered the badger cull in a bid to reduce tuberculosis in cattle, and the move sparked fierce debate among animal rights activists, including Queen rocker Brian May.
McIntosh has been dating model/actress Brook since the beginning of the year (14).
