BARCELONA footballer player Gerard Pique could face up to six months in jail after he was caught driving without a valid licence. 

According to reports from radio station Cadena Ser he was pulled over yesterday (Friday) for a routine check and asked to show his documents. Police officers found he had zero points left on his licence so he should not have been driving.

In Spain drivers start with 12 points and then lose them for various offences. Once they have lost all their points they can’t drive until points are reinstated, normally after a ban and a written test following a road safety training session. 

Taking to the roads before having points reinstated is an offence punishable by up to six months in prison or a fine of €6,000. 

This is not the first time he has been in trouble with the police. Last year he was fined for speeding and in 2014 he had to pay €10,500 for disobedience after an argument with a traffic officer. His brother was fined for a road infringement in the same incident.
