England rugby star Danny Cipriani has been convicted of drink-driving after getting behind the wheel having spent the night drinking cocktails and champagne.
The fly-half, 28, was so drunk his eyes were "glazed", he slurred his words and could not stand straight after he crashed his black Mercedes into a taxi in London at 5.15am on June 1 last year.
The Wasps player, then with Sale Sharks, was breathalysed after the crash in Imperial Road, Fulham, and found to have 67 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath - twice the drink-drive limit.
He was found guilty of drink-driving on Friday following a trial at Westminster Magistrates' Court.
Cipriani, who earns ?3,200 a week, was ordered to pay a total of ?7,620 in fines and costs.
He was also banned from driving for 18 months.
He was fined ?4,500 and ordered to pay ?3,120 in costs.
