Tongeren - Either he thought the store was "drive-thru", or he was drunk, as Belgian footballer Jonathan Legear drives his Porsche into a petrol station convenience store, caught by CCTV cameras.
One customer was injured, and Legear faces a driving ban of at least two weeks, after he drove his Porsche through the petrol station and directly into the convenience store in the Belgian town of Tongeren.
CCTV cameras caught the event from all angles, as he smashed the car through the glass doors into the store.
The luxury car plowed its way through several aisles of food and drinks before stopping, forcing a customer, Jeffrey Dewallef, to jump out of the way. According to Dewallef, "Injuries are mostly scrapes but I also have a badly twisted ankle."
Legear, who plays for the Russian club, Terek Grozny, said that, by accident, he pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake.
According to a court spokesman, Michel Zegers, Legear will be charged with involuntary assault and, possibly, intoxication. Zegers said that there is no reason preventing Legear from returning to Grozny, "as long as he does not drive there himself."
Legear apologized through his lawyer to all who "have been directly or indirectly affected by what happened."
His statement read, "I will accept the consequences of the accident according to the law," however he denied he was severely drunk and said that he was "only slightly" over the drink-drive limit.
