British rapper Professor Green has been banned from the roads for a year after pleading guilty to a drink-driving charge. The Read All About It hitmaker, real name Stephen Manderson, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in November (13) after police officers discovered his car had been involved in a crash with a van. He had called cops to his house to report a stolen watch but ended up in a police cell when officers smelled alcohol and subjected him to a breath test. On Thursday (20Mar14), the 30-year-old appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court in England and pleaded guilty to the charge. Prosecutors told the court Manderson had nearly double the legal limit of alcohol in his system. He was fined $640 (£400) and ordered to pay $200 (£125) in court costs. He was banned from driving for a minimum of 12 months but he can have the ban reduced to nine months if he takes a drink-drive awareness course.
