Former Reggae Boy Marlon King arrested after Crash

Marlong King, striker, Birmingham City

Former Jamaican international striker Marlon King is once again in trouble with the law.

The striker who is currently recovering from knee surgery was on Friday arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after a motor-vehicle accident which involved three cars and left a man with serious injuries in Winthorpe near Newark, Nottinghampshire.

King who plays for English Championship club Birmingham City was released on police bail last night pending further inquiries into the crash.

A 35-year-old man was airlifted to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre from the scene of the crash on the Lincoln-bound carriageway of the A46-A17 interchange.


A Porsche, a Volkswagen Polo and a Vauxhall Astra were involved in the incident at 2.50pm on Friday.

The road was closed for two and a half hours following the crash, which also left other occupants of the cars suffering from whiplash injuries.

King, whose previous clubs include Watford, Middlesbrough and Coventry City, underwent knee surgery last month, and also retired from international football in November.

A spokesman for Birmingham City said: “We are aware of a road traffic accident involving our player and the matter is now being investigated by the police.”

King who celebrated his 33rd birthday on Friday has not been recalled to the Jamaican World Cup squad since last May after he was axed following a friendly international against Panama.
