Dozy driver Berkoff cops it from court

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BEV­ERLY Hills cop star and for­mer James Bond vil­lain Steven Berkoff was fined £400 and given three points on his li­cence af­ter he hit a pedes­trian.

The vet­eran ac­tor, 76, was found guilty of not driv­ing with due care and at­ten­tion af­ter he hit Fiona Scully’s leg as he drove through the West End on New Year’s Eve.

The clearly ag­i­tated ac­tor re­fused to an­swer ques­tions but told a mem­ber of the pub­lic to “f*** off” af­ter the rul­ing at the City of Lon­don Mag­is­trates Court.

De­liv­er­ing the ver­dict, chair­man of the bench Dr An­drew Pairm­ley said: “We felt your driv­ing fell be­low the stan­dard of a rea­son­able driver.”

The ac­tor had been hauled be­fore the courts in Fe­bru­ary for bad driv­ing and was banned from Bri­tish roads for six months af­ter plead­ing guilty to jump­ing a red light.

At the hear­ing he claimed he only jumped the light to get out of the way of a po­lice car.
