Former Arsenal striker and Danish international, Nicklas Bendtner has begun his 50 day sentence for assaulting a taxi driver last September.
Bendtner hit the driver in the face after refusing to pay his fare, claiming to have been acting in self defence after a bottle was allegedly thrown at him.
He will serve his 50 day sentence at his home, whilst wearing a tag. It has however been revealed in The Independent that the taxi driver has also lost his job.
It is alleged that the enraged cabbie pursued Bendtner and his girlfriend, driving aggressively at them, after being "bilked" by Bendtner. 30 year old Bendtner dropped his appeal in November and will be returning to his current club, Rosenberg in March.
