Misbehavin’: John Terry and the Learner Driver

John Terry and his boys seem to have gotten themselves into a bit of drunken trouble late Sunday night – and Mr. Terry might be interviewed by police as a result.

At the witching hour of 4.15 am, the England captain and Chelsea star was out with a group of team-mates including Ashley Cole and Steve Sidwell. Out celebrating after the team’s win over Bolton, they were dining at the all-night staple, Vinqt Quatre on Fulham Road.  A photographer waiting outside the restaurant claims the boys blocked him from taking pictures and that his moped got damaged in the process.

Serious stuff, this.

Police were also told by the restaurant staff that the Chelsea boys were rude and rowdy with the staff, and even had a food fight.  Chelsea’s spokesperson, well trained in dealing with matters such as drunk and disorderly behaviour, denied that any of their players were involved in causing criminal damage. 

The photog claims JT offered to pay him if he would destroy a photograph he had taken.  He also says someone pulled the ‘L’ plates off his moped and threw it to the ground. 

We’ve always been suckers for badly behaving boys, especially those who have more money than sense, but aren’t there different stakes at play when you’re the England captain? Should JT be at home swotting up on his knowledge of world capitals rather than getting stonking drunk and abusing learner drivers? Or is this all part of the charm that comes with the baller gig?  Your thoughts Kickettes?

  1. Like being a server and having to be cheerful the whole time isn't bad enough, cleaning up after overgrown 5-year-olds is more than anyone deserves for the low wages they make.

    I know my opinion is in the minority on this site, but I can’t help it.  I just adore this man.  It’s mainly for the way he looks and his on-the-pitch persona.  And I seriously disagree with the idea that he shouldn’t be England captain.  I don’t think anyone could be more committed to the game than John Terry.  But yes, I do agree that he really should think about these things before he does them, knowing he’ll end up with bad press over it.  On the other hand, I’m encouraged by the idea that I might bump into him some morning a 4.15.  I know I should be ashamed, but…I’m not.  I’ll be more morally upstanding when it doesn’t involve JT.

    he disgusts me

    how everyone can fawn over him and completely disregard Carra annoys me so much

    just cos Carra doesn’t court publicity

    just cos Carra doesn’t demand 140k a week

    just cos Carra is a family man who doesn’t cheat all the time

    just cos Carra is modest and down to earth

    just cos Carra hasn’t made crude and callous jokes about tragedies

    just cos Carra doesn’t continually abuse the ref and go OTT everytime

    JT should never have been chosen to represent the England players.  He’s nothing but a white trash thug, and this new episode is nothing new.  I used to fancy him until i read about his behaviour on 9/11.  I’ll never forgive him or the other Chelsea players for that one.

  5. tammyv says:

    I love JT; he is my favorite player.  There is something about the crazy bipolar supermuppet that I adore but I have no illusions that he is perfect.

    If he were to lose the armband, it should go to Michael Owen.. He is England first and always, like no other player besides mabe Beckham

    tammyv, I remember that incident and it is the number one reason I think Terry is a ****.  I remember Sept 11 vividly despite the fact that I was in Los Angeles. 

    rachel,as someone who has worked in the service industry I completely agree!

    JT is such an ***.  Sorry to those who love him or any hard-core Chelsea fans out there.  Man….I really believe Gerrard should be England’s captain.

    No charm there, I’m afraid, not on my book.
    Maybe I’m getting old but food fights and rowdy boys are only to be expected in cute babies like that one in the picture.

  8. Robin says:

    I think he and Alex would make a good pair. Then Toni and Stevie could stay home together and mind the children.

  9. tammyv says:

    JT, JT, JT… are you in enough trouble? Have you done this dumbass move before? Actually several times before?  Didn’t already go on trial for some dumb drunken hijinx with an assult charge and criminal trial?

    At least this time you were not doing it during an international tragedy (see 9/12/01 incident). 

    Seriously you are captain of the England squad and kids all over the world look up to you (inciding your own, daddy).  Lets work on thinking before we do dumb stuff.

    Honestly, I can’t though say that I am surprised as he has been out of control for months on the pitch

  10. Cherry says:

    His reputation has never been good. Don’t know why he was made England Captain. He’s a good player and all that, but he’s also a twat.

  11. Kelsey says:

    I agree with Amanda.  His son is adorable!  I love the hair.

    As for the incident…boys will be boys i guess.  photographers need to mind their own business.  some of them deserve what they get.

  12. Amanda says:

    I don’t know what this post was about… I have a major thing for guys with babies so my attention was captive elsewhere.  Now if you will excuse me, I must wipe the drool from my keyboard.

  13. tammyv says:

    My problem is that this is not the first (or second) time that he has been caught doing this kind of a thing.

    He went on trial for a barfight that cost him a spot on the England team for years. He was found not guilty. 

    Then he, Lamps, and some other boys got trashed (and some got naked) and created a “national disgrace” because they did it the day after the Sept 11, tragedy and have been accused of mocking the Americans stuck at the hotel where their Hijinx took place for being upset.  They all deny it.  Lamps lost his spot on the England Squad and they all got maximum fines from Chelsea for it.

    JT knows better.  I am fine with having fun, letting your hair down, whatever, but there is a baselevel of behavior that is befitting your position.  Rank has its privileges but it also has its responsibilites.

  14. brandy says:

    Um, I’m assuming that is his child.

    If that is indeed the case, why wasn’t he home with his family instead of acting like a teenage boy/twat with his obviously equally immature twat-friends?

    Yes, boys will be boys, but doesn’t that also imply that men should act like men? As in, responsible and mature?


  15. Tres Bien says:

    The paps just need to leave the lads alone.  I know, that’s like asking a fly to stay away from poop.

    They Were Just Having Some Fun.. Its A Learner Plate.. Not Exactly Valuable!
    His Kids Are Just Sooo Cute!

  17. Rachel says:

    I don’t have a problem with the photog bit, because they annoy me, but as a former server the food fight business ticks me off. Depending on how well they tipped, that’s just being an asshat. 

    Like being a server and having to be cheerful the whole time isn’t bad enough, cleaning up after overgrown 5-year-olds is more than anyone deserves for the low wages they make.
