Michael Jennings busted driving unlicenced

Michael Jennings PanthersPenrith star Michael Jennings has been the first Panther to hit the headlines for the wrong reasons in 2010, with the speedster charged for driving unlicenced by Police in Western Sydney.

Confirmed by club and player, the Panthers have apparently already spoken to Jennings at length about the situation and have reprimanded him accordingly.

Apparently pulled over at Quakers Hill on January 29 – Jennings was alleged to have been driving despite having lost his licence for using up all his demerit points previously.

After being caught, Jennings made contact with the club immediately to report the situation. Penrith boss Mick Leary has held talks with Jennings and his manager Issac Moses but at this stage any suspension or possible sanctions by the club are unknown.

According to Leary;

“I called him in and disciplined him,” Leary confirmed. “His manager Isaac Moses was also there.

“It was the Monday after it happened. He was reprimanded. It was a stupid thing to do. I told Michael he simply cannot afford to do these things when he is in the limelight and representing Australia. He took everything on board.”

Jennings recently turned out for the NRL Allstars side on the Gold Coast.
